    Yet another dumb believer.
    Don't ask what clinical trials can do for you, ask what you can do for clinical trials.

    If he/or a family member had an injury or illness in which stem cell therapy could potentially help him/them, he would be a believer!

    Embroynic stem cell research was banned there in 2009, so his budget proposal is to include wording that state funds cannot be used also. Gov. McDonnell has said he believes in other stem cell research including adult stem cells, but offers no additional money for that. For the state trying to attract stem cell business, his personal scientific stance will surely hinder all those efforts.

    It appears that you should do more research and find out that he declares himself as a roman catholic. Just another corrupt and sick politician. Sick people make sick decisions.

    ox, as I've said, being a Roman Catholic doesn't equal stupidity. I'm a roman Catholic and a parapaplegic. I've thought and continue to think about it. When I see the criminasls , who pose as priests, get off scott free for abusing childen; the policy of the hierarchy is pick and choose. Yes abuse of the system would be bad but overwhelmingly, the Catholic population is in favor of embryonic stem cell research and application. The fact that nothing was done in the lame duck session for enhanceing stem cell research, tells me that it would be suicide to bring it up in this climate. Wise and others hopefully will provide success in any stem cell research and things will carry on.

    keeping on

    Obviously that many american competitors in the medicine market are happy with this kind of action.

    Keeping on, is that a coincidence that 100% of the people against stem cell research are believers? Come on...
    It's not that the rest of us don't do stupid things, but not with the same percentages.

    Somebody who believes in talking snakes, hell and heaven, and other kind of crap, shouldn't be making scientific decisions (or decisions at all, for that matter...). I go by the facts.

    Yet more religious assertions! These are not needed, and add nothing to the debate - all I would say is that many leading scientists are "believers", and also support stem cell research.
