ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the philosophical implications of human embryonic stem cell research (hESCs). It states that curative medicine uses techniques such as surgery, while regenerative medicine constructs replacement parts, such as cells and organs, which substitute for the malfunctioning biological system. According to the author, the development of hESC research in the U.S. has provoked debates over many issues, such as the public funding of embryo experimentation.
