Obama Lifts Bush’s Limits on Stem Cell Research

Today, President Barack Obama lifted the strict limits on Stem Cell research imposed during the Bush administration. In a ceremony in the White House’s East Room, “before an audience that included lawmakers, scientists and patients, several of them in wheelchairs, Mr. Obama announced that he was issuing an executive order intended to advance the research.”

Obama said he “hoped Congress would follow with bipartisan legislation that would ease the existing restrictions even more,” and he pledged that “his administration will ‘make scientific decisions based on facts, not ideology.'”

Needless to say, the anti-science, wingnut crowd is in a tizzy. However, Nancy Reagan praised Obama and many look at the lift of the ban as a “A ‘Welcome’ Change of Faith .”
