Human embryonic stem cells
on research, and their reversal
In 2001, President George W Bush released funding to support embryonic
stem-cell research in government laboratories. However, he severely restricted
research projects by prohibiting them from working with stem cell lines that
already existed at the time his restriction was announced.
During his campaign for the presidency, President Barak Obama consistently
promised to remove the restrictions.
