Lines That Divide USA, 52 min. -Official Selection California Independent Film Festival 2010 Stem cell technology: Miracle cure or biological colonialism?

This film provides two completely different points of view in heated debate: Supporters argue it is our moral duty to pursue scientific progress that provides healing and hope for humanity. Detractors argue the ends do not justify the means in harvesting some human life to save others.

The question might just come down to ”who do you entrust with the power to re-invent mankind?”

“LINES THAT DIVIDE” 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.
