Answer the following question based on your knowledge of Natural Law Theory while also adding in your own viewpoint:
“Totipotency, defined as the ability of a single cell to generate an entire individual, has traditionally served as a cornerstone to frame the moral relevance of nascent human life. This ‘potentiality principle’ has served as an ethical reference point for shaping legal regulations for stem cell research in most Western countries (Testa, Giuseppe et al. “Breakdown of the potentiality principle and its impact on global stem cell research.” Cell stem cell vol. 1,2 (2007): 153-6).
Question – Stem cells can be developed into tissues that could potentially cure diseases like Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, diabetes, etc. However, extracting stem cells from 5 to 7-day-old embryos kills the embryos, thus interfering with the above-referenced “potentiality principle.”
In your opinion, should stem cells be extracted from these embryos to further scientific research?
How, in your opinion, would a Natural Law theorist respond to this question?
This should be two well written paragraphs with no citations.
