...cells officiated by the Human Tissue Authority. The moral status of an embryo being used for stem cell research presents a heated debate on the significance of human ethical principles. Several faith based groups such as the Catholic Church and some humanitarians argue that depriving embryos moral rights such that they are not treated as other human beings is unethical. Life begins at conception and equal to a fully-grown up human (Health 2009). Though the resulting medical treatments are impressive, it is controversial to save one life at the expense of the other...
