ABSTRACT
The article analyzes U.S. President George W. Bush's decision on embryonic stem cell research in the U.S. President Bush's decision was to allow federal funding for research on stem-cell lines that had already been taken from embryos, but not funding for research on stem cells that might be taken from embryos in the future. Bush's policy is morally defensible. It accepts past evils but is in no-way encouraging future evils. Pro-life critics of his decision worry that demands for more funding will be unstoppable.
