Obama Lifts Ban on Embryonic Stem Cell Research
Congratulations to President Obama for overturning Bush's eight year ban on the use of federal funds to support embryonic stem cell research. It's good to see an administration that puts science and knowledge back in the front seat again. It was sickening to watch so-called "religion" put a stop to scientific and medical advances for the past eight years. Must religion always be on the side of ignorance? Must it always exist in the Dark Ages? Must we still believe that the universe revolves around the Earth, and that ships can sail off the edge of the Earth into Hades? Is it really religion, or is it a cynical use of religion by political charlatans trying to hoodwink and control their followers which created this ban on stem cell research? It's a refreshing change, after the past eight years, to see someone with a real mind in the White House, who is using his mind for the benefit of all Americans, not just his business cronies.
