Because we've had a backwards thinking christian in office for the past 8 years.



But I still hate Obama.

I think this is a great step forward in the medical field.

I have heard many great things about stem cells. I hope that with this funding they can take a step to finding cures for diseases we never thought were curable.

I support Obama's decision a great deal

Oh, and to Teny, as far as I know, stem cells are cells that haven't been "programmed" yet, meaning they haven't become a body part or organ said fetus might need. Yep, the come from fetuses.. This doesn't bother me because they were aborted in the first place usually so they could be used for better stuff.

Pardon my language, but what the actual link. Do not go unless you are over 18.

They take the fetus' spine and dissect it to remove the stem cells. They then do research on it.

its because religion and state were mixed
now we have a president who thinks for the good of every one and can extinguish what is wrong morally with out the context of religion interfering
