Stem Cell Research in the News: More than a Moral Status Debate?

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • The interest and controversy generated by stem cell research over the past decade has raised hopes for scientific breakthroughs and debates regarding the limits of ethical research. In particular, the debate surrounding the moral status of the embryo has received considerable attention in scientific and political arenas. However, coverage in the public arena of the elite press is less clear. We explore and reflect on the coverage of this debate in the public realm of the elite press in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Canada, by examining newspaper articles from each jurisdiction collected over a period of two decades.
