"It is ESCR researchers who have politicized science and stood in the way of real progress"

That's the conclusion of an editorial in today's "Investor's Business Daily"

"Five years after a budget-busting $3 billion was allocated to embryonic stem cell research, there have been no cures, no therapies and little progress. So supporters are embracing research they once opposed....

Five years later, ESCR has failed to deliver and backers of Prop 71 are admitting failure. The California Institute for Regenerative Medicine, the state agency created to, as some have put it, restore science to its rightful place, is diverting funds from ESCR to research that has produced actual therapies and treatments: adult stem cell research."

Longtime readers of "A Shepherd's Voice" know that's a mantra we've been chanting since this blog began, and in the Saints Peter and Paul parish bulletin before that. We admit we've fallen behind of late, but that's because there are so many amazing stories of treatment with adult stem-cells we just can't keep up.
