Obama to lift ban on stem cell research soon: aide
Link to the article: www.Canada.com
Could be contraversial, but I think it's a step in the right direction.
I also think this is a very good move.
Now, I wonder how long it takes until people come here to condemn it and anyone that agrees with it?
He has also upheld Bush's religious discrimination policy, how nice
Yeah I to think it's a good move. Stem cell research is long over due in the US, this could change the lives of so many people.
If one embryo can save thousands of lives, it can be no bad thing.
There was never a ban on stem cell research.
The only restriction was that if you wanted money from the government, you were restricted to the existing stem cell lines. If you had private funding, there were no restrictions.
Fantastic news. I don't think we can even begin to anticipate what advantages in terms of health that this can bring.
Great news, hope it leads to some amazing scientific advances.
Very good news, I'm happy this is being put into affect. Not everyone is gonna like it though. Tough luck for them.
Minority being the overly-religious people seem to have a priority of everyone else.
Good move Barrack.
Wow, I was expecting at least some criticism.
Anyway, great news. This should hopefully be a major boost for stem cell research.
Fantastic news, indeed. Hopefully these recent tests will have positive results.
Sort of shooting yourselves in the foot if you're foreign in here.
Saying that British or Canadian or Australian scientists are too stupid to find the cure for diseases with their own embryos?
No, not really. Any scientific advancements are good, no matter what nationality the scientist. And the more scientists are allowed to expand scientific horizons, the more scientific discoveries and innovation in science can happen.
Not really. It's like Squall said, all advances are good, regardless of which country they come from. With more scientists working on a problem, with access to more resources and money, the problem is more likely to be solved sooner. And of course, America has more scientists, resources and money than just about any country.
I know what you're saying, but the "Hoorah, America's in it, now maybe there'll FINALLY be some progression." Just made me laugh.
I think it's a good move.
I was about to say that, read that somewhere, this isn't entirely accurate.
