The Executive Order on stem cell research is here with the Memorandum For The Heads Of Executive Departments And Agencies (SUBJECT: Scientific Integrity) here .
The press from the White House, with photo is from here:
As we restore our commitment to
science, and resume funding for promising stem cell research, we owe a
debt of gratitude to so many tireless advocates, some of whom are with
us today, many of whom are not. Today, we honor all those whose names
we don’t know, who organized, and raised awareness, and kept on
fighting – even when it was too late for them, or for the people they
love. And we honor those we know, who used their influence to help
others and bring attention to this cause – people like Christopher and
Dana Reeve, who we wish could be here to see this moment.
