Stem Cell Politics

The House of Representatives is set to vote on the Castle-DeGette bill permitting  funding for research on stem cells from embryos created at fertility clinics that would not otherwise be used.  They will also vote on a separate bill, supported by many pro-life representatives, which encourages research on stem cells drawn from umbilical cord blood.  Supporters are predicting passage of both bills.

The NewsHour ran a short piece last nice discussing the various political aspects of the stem cell research and the two bills.  [bm]
