I can’t think of another explanation that makes sense of this 180-degree turn:
In a break with President Bush, the Senate Republican leader, Bill Frist, has decided to support a bill to expand federal financing for embryonic stem cell research, a move that could push it closer to passage and force a confrontation with the White House, which is threatening to veto the measure.
Let’s review: Adult stem cell therapies now offer over four dozen treatments for diseases. Embryonic stem cells cause malignant cancer.
Hey, maybe injecting mice with embryonic stem cells is a new, environmentally friendly way to get rid of them around the house, seeing as how doing it in the lab kills them about 100% of the time.
