    This is got to be a topic on the minds of scientists.
    Is it as controversial as it is suggested it is?  I don't think so.  I haven't seen too many avg. Americans giving Obama criticism for lifting the Federal Grant ban.  I think this approach to science and medicine is a remarkable advancement towards finding cures and avoiding future pandemics.

    Now the US can get in step with the rest of the civilized world.
    There is actually a new process of creating stem cells that is less controversial.

    I believe the American pro-lifers have politicized the issue--I don't believe it is that controversial among scientists.  It's also my understanding that stem cells can be harvested from endometrial tissue.

    Good points.

    I personally don't think stem-cell should be a liberal or conservative issue.  It is about damn time that American Scientist get this shot at a brand new field of discovery.  Right wing religious issues should not mingle with science.  I been very disappointed with the American Supreme Court on these matters.  Science and religion don't mix.

      Didn't you make a point on another thread previously about how the American perspective has been so informed by religion it's hard for us to extricate ourselves?

      But I agree.. We are often left behind the rest of the west.

      So what are you, a history graduate student...or.. prof?

    Surly Stem Cell is the future of medicine? I'm not a student or anything like that, but from what I've read it has the possibilities to cure everything. Fair enough, were a long way from that, and it's still in it's early days, but can you imagine life in 50 years with this technology?

      Well, I certainly have no religious argument against it - but I am a natural skeptic and would just like to remind everyone that these are the same scientists that bought us the hydrogen bomb, mad cow disease, Australian rabbits, and the production processes that have made it dangerous for pregnant women to eat oily fish. sad

      Taking an engine apart to find out how it works invariably ends in a broken engine. smile

        I might be repeating myself.  I sure Ms. Lita will let me know. 

        I like what's said here, "I certainly have no religious argument against it".
