What do you think of the Obama administration’s lifting of restrictions on federal funding for human embryonic stem cell research?
As long as the research is taking place on embryos that would otherwise be discarded, I have no problem with it.

Embryonic stem cell research has unfortunately become more of a political issue than a medical or scientific one. Almost all major research breakthroughs using these cells have come from adult stem cell research and not embryonic. The future potential for disease cures lies with adult stem cells, or in using a patient’s own stem cells, because there is less risk of rejection.
