Last August, I wrote about how a Christian group had gotten a judge to block a planned expansion of federal funding for stem cell research (using the usual bunk arguments, of course). I now come bearing good news on the matter:
A federal appeals court said the federal government can continue to fund research involving human embryonic stem cells, a victory for the Obama administration in an area of medical and ethical debate.
The 2-1 ruling overturned a trial judge's injunction in August 2010 that barred funding for the research.
The kicker: All three judges were Republican-appointed. Oops.
