A Way Out?

Dal Washington Post di oggi:

[…] As with any scientific breakthrough, the country has to wait for other scientists to successfully repeat the experiment to verify that the procedure will work. Researchers should also be prepared to respond to critics of the landmark scientific report, such as Richard Doerflinger of the U.S. Conference of Bishops. But if this new process is demonstrated to be viable, Mr. Bush can easily articulate rules that would allow federal funding for research on stem cells gathered harmlessly when cells are to be taken for genetic testing anyway. Then stem cell research on a range of debilitating and deadly diseases could finally proceed faster in the United States. On the other hand, sticking to his disappointing rhetoric of last week would unfairly raise the ethical bar Mr. Bush set in 2001 for America’s stem cell scientists and continue to stunt the growth of this valuable field of study.
