RE: [IP] Embryonic Stem Cell Research



Yes, the question posed before Bush is as to whether tax dollars will go to
embryonic stem cell research through the NIH.  While the president is not
deciding whether to ban privately funded embryonic stem cell research, the
likelihood of much progress being made in privately funded research is slim.
In the case of scientific research, as with many things, there is strength
in numbers...and here, the number of dollars toward going toward the funding
is what will make a difference.  Scientists have been quoted as saying that
these stem cells may begin to be used in cures in three years minimum should
Bush allow embryonic stem cell research in the NIH.  If he does not, one can
only imagine how long it will take to figure out the potential of these stem
cells and how they might be implemented in cures.  Decades?  Centuries?
Respectfully,
Erin :)

Subject: [IP] Embryonic Stem Cell Research


There is a lot of discussion currently on this list about embryonic stem
cell research.  I just want to make sure everyone is clear on the question
posed to President Bush right now.  The question currently before President
Bush is not one of allowing the research to continue, but one of whether our
tax dollars should be paying for the research through NIH funding.  Even if
President Bush does not allow our tax dollars to pay for this research, the
research will still continue through private funding.
