            My father fought ALS for eight years, finally gaining his freedom from it at age 82. Although a young person's disease, it can strike anybody, at any age. So with enthusiasm, I accepted the challenge and recorded the event here. I challenged my nephews and Pope Francis (as penance for his church's opposition to stem cell research).

                Stem cell research: A potential miracle cure for diseases or a form of biological colonialism? The debate still rages over this controversial science. Supporters argue that it is our moral duty to pursue scientific progress that provides healing hope for humanity. Detractors argue that the ends don't justify the means in harvesting some human life to save others. This documentary seeks to educate the public on the scientific basics of stem cell research and the moral issues surrounding it as we enter the 21st century. First, the viewer is introduced to the basic science of stem cells and how they are gathered for medical use. Embryonic stem cells and adult stem cells are both explained along with their similarities, differences and methods of procurement. Scientific issues are examined, such as the benefits, drawbacks, and scientific and medical results of both. The documentary also introduces the moral issues being argued in the public square – issues of human life and the medical utilization of embryos, as well as women’s health issues that arise from the procurement of eggs used in much of the research. Scientists, doctors and ethicists on both sides weigh in with their views. One of the solutions to achieving the mass amount of stem cell lines needed for this burgeoning stem cell industry is cloning. The documentary examines cloning, what it is, what it isn’t, as well as the current scientific, moral and political issues surrounding this volatile issue in the debate. Lastly, the film looks at the horizon of scientific and medical research in stem cells. New and alternate forms of creating or accumulating stem cells seem to be making breakthroughs monthly around the world as scientists explore the vistas of possibilities, while seeking to address the ethical issues surrounding the lines that divide.

                  Research on stem cells can confuse a person not familiar with the field: What is an embryonic stem cell? What is an adult stem cell? What is a pluripotent cell, compared to a unipotent one? Luis Parada, Ph.D., Chair of Developmental Biology, reviews the science of stem cells, and how current animal models provide biological information that is applicable to human biology and disease, during the President’s Lecture on January 29, 2008.
