Its a waste of money and the scientists have already figured a way around the problem. Its just more of the taxpayers money being pissed away.
The reality is that the scientific edge that makes this country what it is is slipping away due to shortsightedness as displayed in the previous comments. I understand where you all come from but most of what you say just ain't so.
Who exactly will pay for this research btw? Private companies? Do you know any that are actually investing in it here in the U.S.?
Just an FYI. Adult stem cell's are what is being used and is working. You can even use your own stem cells. This beats the embryo. In fact using the embryo's has caused more harm than good in most instances. You can go online and read about it. Using our tax dollars for research on the embryo I really don't agree with. Using it for adult stem cell, yes. That is just my opinion for what it's worth.
Even though the US has banned it until recently, there has not been even 1 case of embryonic stem cells being successful in testing. Even though most people think the testing will only take place on frozen embryos, Obama has cleared the way for use of all embryos for research, including late term abortions.
So Quail I didn't realize you were a bio-med scientist and an expert. So we get our info from different sources. Does that make us wrong - NO. Where did you receive your PHd Dr. Quail?
