(From KATC3). After all the light, noise and hot air from Lousiana politicians, the 2004 session wound up in that state with no bill passed on stem cell research and therapeutic cloning. In terms of the continuing damage to private funding in Louisiana, this is as bad as a ban - no-one will fund medical research into regenerative medicine that might still be criminalized in the next legislative session. This is a good reminder that politicians don't actually hold the key to creation and progress. All they can do is obstruct, delay and destroy. They should do us all a favor and keep their noses out of medical research that will lead to longer, healthier lives.
