ABSTRACT
The article reflects on the decision of U.S. President George W. Bush to restrict federal funding of research involving human embryonic stem cells. The reason offered by Bush behind his decision is that the stem cells come from embryos already destroyed. These stem cells, which will otherwise be wasted may be used to search for cures for deadly diseases. Politically, the decision may play a major role among a substantial majority. The president, though he stumbled in his moral reasoning, conceived and executed a sharp political stroke to have earned sufficient public standing to lead the nation through a great new era in the history.
