August 2010
National Right to Life News;Aug/Sep2010, Vol. 37 Issue 8/9, p27
The article reports that Judge Royce C. Lamberth has ordered a preliminary injunction to curb the plan of the administration of U.S. President Barack Obama to continue to provide funding for embryonic stem cell (ESC) research. According to Lamberth, the decision to fund the research was inconsistent with the Dickey-Wicker Amendment. For the National Institutes of Health (NIH), grants will not be given for stem cell research following a judicial decision which halted the expansion of research funding.
