Obama Lifts Restrictions on Stem Cell Research, "Science" Will Guide

As expected, President Obama continued to advance the culture of death by removing restrictions of government funding of stem cell research.  Despite the fact that there has not been any meaningful advance in this area and given that there is an alternative.

stem-cell-harvest WASHINGTON (AP) - From tiny embryonic cells to the large-scale physics of global warming, President Barrack Obama urged researchers on Monday to follow science and not ideology as he abolished contentious Bush-era restraints on stem-cell research. "Our government has forced what I believe is a false choice between sound science and moral values," Obama declared as he signed documents changing U.S. science policy and removing what some researchers have said were shackles on their work.

"It is about ensuring that scientific data is never distorted or concealed to serve a political agenda - and that we make scientific decisions based on facts, not ideology," Obama said.

You can be sure that the only political agenda that will not be served by the "scientific data" will be conservative, religious or moral.  Besides, if Obama really means it, where would this leave AlGore?
