Therapeutic Uses of Stem Cells

pages: 79-84

Abstract

The goal of this article is to expose Orthodox perspective toward therapeutic uses of stem cells. If Orthodox Church supports that life begins when zygote is formed, then it is morally unacceptable to clone human embryonic stem cells, to clone embryos that will never be implanted in uterus for the purposes of scientific research or to create hybrid embryos. In the end of this article author expresses acceptable methods for therapeutic uses of stem cells.
