What Will This News Bring to Life?


NBC News last evening (and probably all of the other major news networks as well) gave extensive coverage about the latest stem cell breakthrough, SEE THIS LINK. While this is a most promising development, particularly for one (like me) who has had his life saved by a stem cell transplant, it remains that many believe political controversy over restrictions on federal funding for embryonic stem cell research is unlikely to end with this announcement.

We now know that mature human cells can be made to acquire the powers of embryonic stem cells, because scientists say research on both types of cells is closely related and is needed to inspire and cross-check each other.

President Bush has twice vetoed legislation that would lift restrictions on federal funding for embryonic stem cell research, and Congress has not mustered the two-thirds majority in each chamber required to override presidential opposition.
