Sadly, embryonic stem cell research is completely legal in this country and has been going on at universities and research facilities for years.
Once the return tide starts, it will be impossible to stem it, and it will prove our undoing.
Sure, President Bush can say that the U.S. government won't fund stem cell research, but believe me, Japan is applauding. Because they will just do it first and get all the patents.
