Court Rules Against Stem Cell Policy

August 23rd, 2010 08:05 admin Leave a comment Go to comments

An anonymous reader sends this quote from Reuters:
“A US district court issued a preliminary injunction Monday stopping federal funding of human embryonic stem cell research, in a slap to the Obama administration’s new guidelines on the sensitive issue. The court ruled in favor of a suit filed in June by researchers who said human embryonic stem cell research involves the destruction of human embryos. Judge Royce Lamberth granted the injunction after finding that the lawsuit would likely succeed because the guidelines violated law banning the use of federal funds to destroy human embryos. ‘(Embryonic stem cell) research is clearly research in which an embryo is destroyed,’ Lamberth wrote in a 15-page ruling.”
