Stem cell research is vitally important. It has the potential to help so many people. Stem cells have the ability to grow, naturally, into any part of a human body - and thus can be used to heal any damaged part of a body. Studies show that pregnant women who have heart attacks are less likely to die from them than other people who have heart attacks, and it is believed likely to be because they are growing a bunch of stem cells inside them and some of them get redirected to help heal the damaged heart. Male fetal stem cells have been found in the hearts of women who were pregnant when they had heart attacks. So, stem cells are already naturally used, when available, for healing. This would give more people access to the resource, and we may be even to make better strides than our bodies already do on their own.
