White House Plays Politics, Again, with Science;
Just One Lie After Another...

The White House is playing politics with science in a highly deceptive way. No one knows if adult stem cells or fetal cells will perform in the same way as embryonic stem cells. No one knows much of anything about any of the science because it is all new. It is true that, contrary to the report, Dr. Atala has said that federal funding for embryonic stem cell research ought proceed for the same reasons I have just given. The notion that there are viable alternatives to embryonic stem cell research has about as much substance as earlier Presidential statements that all embryos now frozen in U.S. IVF clinics could find couples willing to adopt them.
