Embryonic Stem Cell Lines Ruled Ineligible for Federal Funds

The National Institute of Health's (NIH) Advisory Committee recommended withholding federal research funding for embryonic stem cell lines on Wednesday that were thought to be eligible with Obama's policy. Concerned that one particular sentence would open up to lawsuits, the Committee decided to err on the side of caution.

Days after his inauguration, President Obama reversed President Bush's policy of restricting the use of federal funds for research on human embryonic stem.

Prentice notes that embryonic research involves destroying a young human life and more.

"They haven't helped anybody. They haven't really helped that many mice in almost 30 years of research. They tend to form tumors instead."

Meanwhile he lists numerous advances in adult stem cell treatments from bone marrow, umbilical cord blood and more.
