Stem Cell Funding Ban: Appeals Court Allows Funding To Continue For Now

At least it's better than "NEVER." But it's still not good enough

WASHINGTON — A federal appeals court on Thursday permitted federal funding of embryonic stem cell research to proceed for now, while it considers a judge's ruling that had temporarily shut off the funds.

Thursday's temporary court action may be a legal reprieve but not one for laboratories. The National Institutes of Health has suspended work to fund new research projects on embryonic stem cells, and while NIH didn't immediately comment, observers say the scientific process needed to restart that is unlikely before a final court decision.
