  1. I am so glad that with Barack in Office we have a president that realizes we need to move forward in this era in a lot of areas. Stem cell research is one of them. There are so many diseases that the world would be in a better place without, that it doesn’t make since not to do the research. Lets stop being petty and move the nation forward. Stem cell research hurts no one, and helps everyone!
