Home Science Biology President Obama lifts stem cell research ban
On March 9, 2009, U.S. president Barack Obama enacted the executive order "removing barriers to responsible scientific research involving human stem cells," which lifts the federal funding ban on embryonic stem cell research.


From the Office of the Press Secretary, the executive order states that the government limitations placed on the Department of Health and Human Services for the past eight years to fund and conduct human embryonic stem cell research has been removed.

The executive order by President Obama states, “Research involving human embryonic stem cells and human non-embryonic stem cells has the potential to lead to better understanding and treatment of many disabling diseases and conditions."

"Advances over the past decade in this promising scientific field have been encouraging, leading to broad agreement in the scientific community that the research should be supported by Federal funds.”


It concludes by stating, “Executive Order 13435 of June 20, 2007, which supplements the August 9, 2001, statement on human embryonic stem cell research, is revoked.”

The full executive order is found on the White House website “Removing barriers to responsible scientific research involving human stem cells.”

The new executive order on stem cell research is sure to be controversial.
