From ScienceNOW Daily News:
"Whenever lawmakers are debating stem cells, you can guarantee some study about adult stem cells will be released," said a frustrated Senate Democratic aide about the reports, in Nature and Cell Stem Cell."
I can see why they would be frustrated. Every time the Democrats want to push through some embryo destructive legislation the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy sends a memo telling the leading science journals to release studies showing why such unethical legislation isn't needed. After the Democrats go to all the trouble of claiming that millions of people will die without ESCR its a bit rude for the scientists to contradict them by proposing an ethical alternative.
Maybe Congress should just institute a 90-day blackout period on any scientific advancements that contradict the need for their pet causes.
