stem cell reversal
President Obama will be reversing the limits on stem cell research that the Bush administration created. It is good that he did this early in the administration as stem cell research is key to finding cures for many diseases. Unlike other issues, I have yet to hear a convincing argument against stem cell research. Republicans such as Eric Cantor are saying that it is a distraction from the economy, but having more opportunities and funding for this type of research will create more jobs. In this case, it would be professional jobs for those with advanced degrees in the sciences so this would assist with job creation in yet another professional field.
