Comments on the debate in the United States surrounding the question of whether stem-cell research should be federally funded, and relates this topic to the idea that promises of cure and life may be traced back to God.
- Should US fund embryonic-cell research? Belsie, Laurent // Christian Science Monitor;3/13/2001, Vol. 93 Issue 74, p2
Discusses controversy over the funding of embryonic stem cell research in the United States, as opponents claim it will violate the dignity of life and advocates hope it will cure diseases.
- US close to funding stem-cell work. Smaglik, Paul // Nature;12/9/1999, Vol. 402 Issue 6762, p566
Reports that the United States National Institute of Health could provide funding for research on human embryonic stem cells upon approval of guidelines. Distinction between derivation of cells from embryos and research on isolated cells; Use of stem cells taken from frozen in vitro...
- French ethics law revised. Louët, Sabine // Nature Biotechnology;Jan2001, Vol. 19 Issue 1, p6
Reports that French government has proposed changes to its 1994 Bioethics law to allow research on human embryos and facilitate the development of therapies from work from embryonic stem cells (ESC). Provision to derive stem cells from embryos leftover from in vitro fertilization procedures;...
- Recherche sur l'embryon : la science rattrapÃ©e par la loi? BINET, JEAN-RENÉ // Sociologie & SociÃ©tÃ©s;automne2010, Vol. 42 Issue 2, p91
The legislation on bioethics has evolved based on scientific advances. Today, the issue of embryonic research seems to point to the hypothesis of the realities of science lagging behind its promises and of the law being likely to catch up to science. The creation of a bank of frozen human...
- Funding Stem Cell Research. Marwick, Charles // JAMA: Journal of the American Medical Association;2/24/99, Vol. 281 Issue 8, p692
Discusses the decision by the United States National Institutes of Health (NIH) that it can fund research on pluripotent stem cells that come from human embryonic tissues, despite a statutory ban on research involving human embryos. How NIH based its legal decision; The announcement by NIH...

- Embryonic stem cell research and the argument of complicity. Birnbacher, Dieter // Reproductive BioMedicine Online (Reproductive Healthcare Limited;2009 Supplement 1, Vol. 18 Issue S1, p12
While the argument of complicity is only rarely discussed in bioethics, it is of obvious relevance to the issue of imported embryonic stem cells in countries in which the derivation of stem cells from early human embryos is legally prohibited and/or morally rejected. Complicity means that making...
