We have had stem-cell research for years. AllBush did was stop government funding of embryonic stem-cell research, except for research on 71 stem cell lines already harvested before the ban on government funding. Embryonic stem cell research was still funded from private sources and research on adult stem cells continued toreceive funding from both government and private sources. To date, adult stem cells have yielded much more promising results than embryonic cells have, for reasons having nothing to do with funding. It seems embryonic cells are too unformed for the results researchers have been looking for. All Obama did was restore government funding for embryonic stem-cell research, which isn't the most promising area of research anyway. Basically, just spending more of our hard-earned money on another useless project.
