ABSTRACT
The article offers a look at the issue of embryonic stem cell research in the United States. The author reviews how California recently passed a referendum allotting $3 billion for stem cell research. U.S. President George W. Bush and leading Republicans in Congress believe that a human embryo has the same moral rights as a person. Bush has strictly limited the use of federal funds to pursue stem cell research. Referendums similar to the one passed in California are being considered in New Jersey, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Wisconsin and several other states. It is suggested that American scientists are concerned that the political atmosphere surrounding the issue in the U.S. are causing them to fall behind scientists in other countries.
