"PROMISE" OF STEM CELLS
Reading this exchange, I can't help but wonder why, if embryonic stem cell research is such the slam-dunk sure fire cure for every disease under the sun like Ron Reagan and others say it is, it's dependent on federal funding. Seems like the private sector ought to be interested in funding a guaranteed cure for Alzheimer's and Parkinson's -- you'd think something like that could make some money.

Or could it be that embryonic stem cell research really isn't quite so promising, and those wanting to receive funding correctly determined that a story about pro-lifers preventing the cure of diseases would be eaten up by the media?
