President Bush's 2001 restrictions
on research, and their reversal

Sponsored link.


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.
