Abstract

With the rapid development of embryonic stem cell research, ethical issues arising from the research have increasingly become the focus of controversy. The main issues include controversy over moral status of embryos and protection of rights for embryo donors. This paper discusses the two major controversial issues arising in biomedical studies of stem cells, explores the directions and approaches to solve some of these issues and introduces the views on the corresponding policy formation.
