California Anti-Research Efforts Underway

As noted by the Press-Telegram, groups opposed to embryonic stem cell research are starting legislative efforts to halt or impede the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine. "Two state senators with opposite views on stem cell research forged an odd political alliance Wednesday when they introduced a proposed constitutional amendment to 'reform' the new $3 billion California Institute for Regenerative Medicine, which is already facing two lawsuits seeking to put it out of business." Here, "reform" means "pull the rug out from underneath." I would find it easier to respect the positions of those who oppose research into curing age-related conditions if they were open and honest about their motivations.
