Stem Cell Developments
|Good news on the stem cell front:|
The embryonic stem (ES) cell bill that President Bush vetoed last year will be brought up again in the House tomorrow. This bill would allow ES cell research to receive federal funding. Supporters are hopeful that this time they will have a veto-proof majority. I'm skeptical of that but I think they should make the President veto this bill as many times as they can.
In other promising stem cell developments, stem cells similar to ES cells have been found in amniotic fluid. These may prove to be as useful, or nearly as useful, as ES cells. Even the Vatican is cool with this!
