Ethical concerns associated with embryonic stem cell research

Embryonic stem cell research can contribute to developing new treatment methods for severe diseases. The dependence on the use of human embryos in this type of research makes it the subject of heated debate. There are also other ethical questions that arise in the context of stem cell research that are not directly related to the status of the human embryo.
