President Bush (and by extension the GOP) was excoriated for caving to the religious right and showing disdain for science when he signed an executive order prohibiting the use of Federal funds to support the destruction of human embryos for research purposes.
Yet its barely a blip on the radar when real progress is made using adult stem cells - allowing individuals to become their own donors. Why is it so critical that human life is destroyed?
This is besides the point that embryonic stem cell research is still perfectly legal in the US - not to mention that individual states are free to fund such research.
