The White House response to stem cell ruling

 |  NCR Today

The New York Times is reporting that the White House is reviewing how to respond to a federal judge’s ruling that temporarily blocks federal financing for embryonic stem cell research, as stunned advocates and lawmakers seek to digest the implications of the decision.

The Times piece quotes Bill Burton, the White House deputy press secretary, as saying the administration has interpreted the temporary injunction, issued by the judge on Monday, as putting a stop to all federally financed research using embryonic stem cells.
