US Legislation Continues to Block Vital Research

In an article in Wired, the continuing effects of US anti-research legislation are spelled out. Stem cell research is still suffering in the US due to existing legislation that blocks federal funding and fear of pending legislation that would ban most current stem cell work. This research has already produced working therapies for heart disease and regenerative medicine that can cure Crohn's Disease or alleviate Parkinson's symptoms. I encourage you to write to your representatives and ask them why the US government is trying to block this promising, successful medical research.
