CAMR To Mark Legislative Anniversary

On Monday August 9th, the Coalition for the Advancement of Medical Research will mark the third anniversary of restrictions on Federal funding for embryonic stem cell research. "In letters to be sent on Aug. 9 to every candidate seeking federal elected office, CAMR will ask if they agree with Nancy Reagan that President Bush should lift the current restrictions on federal funding of stem cell research and instead allow full funding of all embryonic stem cell research done on left-over donated fertilized eggs, which would otherwise be destroyed." My feeling is that the issue of Federal funding is secondary to the ongoing threat to criminalize therapeutic cloning - a vital technology for stem cell research - since this scares away private funding.
