Many people pay attention to pros and cons of stem cell research and the moral dilemma it poses. It makes you select between two moral principles: you should respect the value of human life; or you should do something to alleviate suffering. It means that if we use stem cell to help prevent suffering, then we are messing with human life.

It's a really hard decision to make.
Determining the current status of educational placements of students with disabilities is difficult. Information varies depending upon the sources pursued. However, from the .
