Discuss stem cell research.

Many of the states having been adding law that makes same sex marriage legal.Not all businesses in the wedding industry are embracing the idea of assisting gay and lesbian couples in arranging their wedding ceremonies, however. Read the attached article that was featured in the Wall Street Journal and identify and discuss the ethical dilemmas surrounding this subject.


An ethical dilemma is something that people have different ideas on its “rightness” or “wrongness.” For instance, if the assignment was to discuss stem cell research, you would have to discuss the pros and cons surrounding abortion (fetal stem cells are still among the richest), as well as whether it is alright to experiment on human beings at all.


This paper is NOT about your particular opinion; after all, your opinion is your own to keep. The paper IS an exercise in learning to think outside the box, and becoming able to empathize and sympathize with others and their views. The more ethical dilemmas you can identify and discuss, the better your grade for the paper’s content will be.


You must write a minimum of 800 words on the topic. Besides identifying and discussing ethical dilemmas you should also apply the ethical theories (duty-based and outcomes-based) and social responsibility theories (stockholder and stakeholder) to the situations. Grammar, spelling and the appropriate use of citations/references (you will have at least one)will be graded. You should use the SPA style of writing.
