The article reports on the approval of foreign ministers from member states of the European Union of funding embryonic stem cell research from 2007 to 2013 in Brussels, Belgium. The move came after strong oppositions from Poland and Malta. However, the motion carries two restrictions that include the prohibition of the use of the funding for research to clone humans and the ban of the creation of embryos for the purpose of being destroyed in the research.
