Here’s a thought.

President Obama lifted restrictions on federal funding for embryonic stem cell research today.

Notice: a ban on federal funding.  Other sources of funding were allowed.

So instead of leaving the funding of this endeavor (that, beyond being immoral, has repeatedly proven to be unsuccessful) to the private sector, President Obama has decided that the taxpayers should pay for it.

So here’s the thought… if embryonic stem cell research is viable, don’t you think drug companies and universities would already be pouring plenty of funds into it?  Would they even need federal funding?

As a wise man said today: “Did they need federal funding for Viagra?!”
