Growing Support For Stem Cell Research

Public support for embryonic stem cell research is still growing in the US - a hopeful sign that in this case, as for others in the past, people do not refuse the chance of cures for age-related disease. "More than three out of five Americans (63 percent) now back embryonic stem cell research, and even higher levels of support exist for bipartisan federal legislation to promote more such research (70 percent) and the growing number of state-level initiatives to encourage stem cell work (76 percent do or might support such measures), according to a
new survey." A pity that support is usually portrayed in terms of public rather than private funding, but this level of awareness and enthusiasm is certainly an improvement over the state of play just a few years ago.
