1. List the steps in the cloning process.
2. Researchers are unable to guarantee that their work with stem cells will produce beneficial results. How should this uncertainty influence the debate on whether scientists should be allowed to conduct such research? Why??
3. Who should have jurisdiction over stem cell research (e.g., Congress, individual states, scientists, an independent agency, or the public)? Why??
4. Kidneys secrete hormones, filter waste products from the blood, and help regulate the concentration of salts in the blood. Normally, people have two kidneys. However, some people lose the function of their kidneys. For people needing a kidney, doctors can transplant a new one if there is an appropriate kidney available. Unfortunately, there are not enough kidneys for everyone needing transplants. Kidneys are an ex of an organ that researchers hope someday to be able to grow from stem cells. Discuss at least 2 reasons for and 2 reasons against growing kidneys from stem cells.
