Scientists have been experimenting with and studying stem cells for about a century now - the first adult stem cells were discovered in 1908 by a Russian histologist, Alexander Maksimov. However, embryonic stem cells were only derived from mice embryos in 1981 and from human embryos in 1998. Since then research has been progressing slowly, and this is because of pressure from pro-life and religious groups with arguments that using embryonic stem cells for the purpose of research is unethical and immoral because it involves extracting the stem cells from the embryo, which destroys the embryo.
