ABSTRACT
The article comments on whether federal funding should be used for embryonic stem cell research in the United States. The Stem Cell Research Enhancement Act of 2005 is the leading legislative proposal relating to federal support of embryonic stem cell research. Unless Congress enacts a law that prohibits it, states have the authority to pass laws to allow for human embryonic stem research using state funds.
