I am working on a debate on embryonic stem cell research. I've been assigned the side that is against it. I need some good, solid arguments that aren't just focusing on the ethics of it, but are about the practicality, the money, the success rate, etc. Do you know of any good sites? Thank you so much.
You will have great difficulty. This type of cell research has been highly regarded and successful in plants and other animals. The issues raised against it seems to be only religious and origin of life based. On the "success" rate, as with all research, it is not possible to predict future discoveries, albeit a number of right wing pundits seem to have those answers.
The only other thing I can think of is for you to research about adult stem cells and the research that's going on with them.
