This book offers a clear, comprehensive, and balanced discussion of the issues surrounding stem cell research. Abramovitz expertly explains the often complex science that underlies regenerative medicine. While this branch of science has promised to yield cures for deadly diseases, debates about the ethics and morality of cloning techniques and the use of stem cells from embryos, as well as questions about whom should have the power to make scientific and ethical decisions in the face of rapidly-progressing technology remain robust.
