The Germans Get It

Germany, has had some of the best policies addressing stem cell research. With the recent announcement of the break through, the Germans have said they will invest more funding in adult stem cell research.

Still the German laws have been fiercely attacked with the usual rhetoric and are set to be reviewed in Parliament in 2008. Here are the usual complaints the Germans have to deal with regarding their current law:

It’s anti-science
They are luddites and will lose their talent to other countries with permissive laws
The will fall behind the rest of the world
They are controlled by a pro life, conservative, ideology

Well the new scientific break through is not anti-science, is a brilliant new discovery, that can lead the way to cures for sick people. Something all people on both sides of the political aisle can get behind!
