ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the impact of the executive order by U.S. President Barack Obama to grant federal funds for embryonic stem-cell research on the funding of the research. Some scientists believe that the order will lead to less funding as the incentive to provide financial support may have lessened. David Prentice of the Family Research Council states that benefactors may opt to withdraw their support due to the hard economic times as well as the confidence that the government will fund such research.
