[QUOTE=cheeselovesmice;2446348]can a company such as Advanced stem Cell Technology make ethical decisions in this arena/industry when they have profit at stake?[/quote] Sure they can. Not sure if they should make every decision themselves though, but who’s gonna control them? And who’s gonna control the controllers?
Should public opinion keep a company from doing something simply because it is unpopular–even though it is legal? (suppose it is?
No, because thanks to public opinion a lot of advanced technologies can’t or will not make it. Stem cell research could lead to a lot of possibilities for every kind of disease, maybe even cure some of them.
Thanks to a bunch of creationists who think we are not allowed to tinker with Gods creatures science is hold back.
Come on… We may dissect a thing to the atom, electron or quark, but can’t tinker with cells?
