A closer look at that stem cell order

Sheila Liaugminas

….and the reporting on it. It’s all so Orwellian.

This Reuters article is just one random example of the general tenor or news coverage on President Obama’s executive order yesterday to expand embryo destructive research for unsuccessful stem cell applications. But they didn’t put it quite that way…

President Barack Obama lifted restrictions on federal funding of human embryonic stem cell research on Monday, angering abortion opponents but cheering those who believe the study could produce treatments for many diseases.
Pause and look at the language here.
