My sense about stem cell research is that there is a lot of really important science there, and an equal amount of politically motivated hucksterism. I therefore appreciated Bush's decision to slow things down a bit and, as a California taxpayer, am less than thrilled about the $3 billion dollar bite on us that California taxpayers agreed to. In other words, I'm wishy-washy. What I do feel strongly about, though, is honest debate. If that's what you like too, you might enjoy Wesley Smith's Weekly Standard artice. In it, he challenges the false factual assertions Mario Cuomo makes in a New York Times Op-Ed attacking Bush for his stem cell policies.
