Stem Cells, Problems of Choice and Funding

The Observer outlines difficulties for stem cell medicine caused by a lack of funding. There are so many conditions that could be cured, but current funding levels only allow a limited range of research. The article rightfully singles out US anti-research legislation as having caused great damage to progress in stem cell medicine. This would be a very good time to write to your representatives, since a vote on banning theraputic cloning - a core technology for regenerative and stem cell medicine - is still pending in the US senate. Prevent your elected representatives from continuing to damage your future health and longevity!
