Adult stem cell research - where * every * successful discovery and application has come from is already allowed - and federal funding is available as well.
The "promise" of embryonic stem cell research is more media hype and hyperbole than reality. I take my information on scientific matters from scientists - not Michael J. Fox.
Let's let adult stem cell research (which is still in it's infancy, pardon the pun) play itself out before getting into the ethically ambiguous areas of embryonic stem cell research.
This is the Pub. Leave common sense at the door.
