Obama Lifts Stem Cell Ban

At last I can give Obama a little credit for doing something that I agree with.

President Barack Obama is set to sign an order keeping a campaign promise to lift restrictions on federal funding for research using embryonic stem cells, an administration official said.

Obama plans to sign the order on March 9, the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said.

This finally reduces a Bush era thing that I did not agree with at all. I think stem cell therapy might lead to a whole host of good things including the cure for cancer. Bush standing in the way of it pushed back science by at least 8 years. Now we can get the federal money flowing and get those scientists to work.
