    CNSNews.com) - On Wednesday, only two days after he lifted President Bush’s executive order banning federal funding of stem cell research that requires the destruction of human embryos, President Barack Obama signed a law that explicilty bans federal funding of any "research in which a human embryo or embryos are destroyed, discarded, or knowingly subjected to risk of injury or death."

    The provision was buried in the 465-page omnibus appropriations bill that Obama signed Wednesday. Known as the Dickey-Wicker amendment, it has been included in the annual appropriations bill for the Department of Health and Human Services every fiscal year since 1996.

    I bet someone says its Bush's fault.

    The new White House almost seems like a sitcom.

    Too bad our country is in the middle of it.

    I must be missing your point. He lifted the ban on federal funding for stem cell research which does NOT require the destruction of human embryos entirely ... then signed a ban of federal funding for embryonic stem cell research.

    The obvious: Adult stem cell research can still be federally funded.

    Notable is the fact that even if Obama is doing something you agree with, taking a partisan shot at him trumps even THAT.

    The way I read it,, he lifted a ban on federal funding of embryonic stell cell research then turned around and banned the federal funding on embryonic stem cell research.

    I'm doing a 'quick read', working on redoing my lessons from the beginning of the year, been at it since 3 am.

    This seems to be a reiteration of a trend of announcing one thing and quietly undoing it. The first in headlines, the qualifier coming later. Indeed though, I wouldn't have expected it on something like this; more foreign affiliated affairs.
