Obama lifts stem cell restriction.


“Today, with the executive order I am about to sign, we will bring the change that so many scientists and researchers, doctors, and innovators, patients and loved ones have hoped for, fought for these past eight years.”

“We will lift the ban on federal funding for … embryonic stem cell research.”

    Yay, another blockage of the religious right overturned. But speaking somewhat selfishly, as a fellow basic biologist to another, you do realize that this means that the medical scientists now have yet another tool to steal funding from us? BTW, the NIH actually funds basic science in addition to medical research in the US (Not that the decision affects those in the land of Tim Hortons)
