ABSTRACT
Focuses on stem cell research, in light of the decision in 2001 by U.S. President George W. Bush to allow federally funded research to proceed on only 60 or so colonies of stem cells already in existence. Controversy, since stem cells hold great promise for medical research, but are created by destroying human embryos; Update on what has happened to the stem cells as of August 12, 2002, stating that only seventeen of 78 eligible ones are 'accessible,' and only three of those are ready for use; Demand that the system be improved to use them.
