Let Reason Prevail:

Science:President Bush has imposed a "far-reaching ban on stem cell research" the John Kerry campaign says. And the media repeat the refrain. But is it true?

Actually, no. But that hasn't stopped it from being repeated over and over. It's amazing to us how lazy political debates can get. Especially when many so-called debates could be decided simply by looking at a few numbers.

I came across this while looking for something else on the yahoo finance website. It doesn't say anything new, but it does refute some false rhetoric nicely.

As for :"Here in America," he said, "we don't sacrifice science for ideology."
If that were true, there would be a lot more animal testing than there is now.
