Background and History
Beneficial Uses of Stem Cells
Legal and Ethical Issues

From the Paper:

"The benefits of stem cells are tremendous: so far, considerable research has demonstrated that continued development of stem cell science will eventually enable physicians to treat, cure, and prevent Alzheimer's, Cystic Fibrosis, Cancer, Diabetes, Parkinson's, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Sickle Cell, and Tay-Sachs Disease. Furthermore, because stem cells can be stimulated to develop into complete functioning biological organs such as kidneys, livers, hearts, and lungs, they could very well entirely eliminate the need for donor organs (Sagan, 1997)."
