Obama Ends Executive Requirement for Funding Alternative Stem Cell Research Projects

Earlier this week, the President of the United States, Barack Obama rescinded a long-standing executive order that limited federal funding for embryonic stem cell research to lines existing in 2001.

Wesley J. Smith is reporting Obama also rescinded another Executive Order, #13435, which required federal funding for non-embryonic stem cell research projects. Read about it on the First Things Blog.

Hat tip to Clayton.
