Another Day, Another Bad Bush Policy Falls

In yet another of his awesome executive orders to reverse all the bad policies we've had to deal with for the past eight years, the President is going to overturn the ban on embryonic stem cell research on Monday.

Currently, unused frozen embryos and their stem cells are simply discarded, since it is against the law for them to be used for federally funded stem cell research. Only a few lines of stem cells escaped the ban, about a dozen usable lines were grandfathered in.

Which means not only have we missed out on many scientific discoveries, but also that U.S. researchers were either leaving the U.S. for countries where they could be funded for their research. Let's hope this can reverse the brain drain!
