Monica pointed out Fr. Tad’s most recent column, Holy Grail of Reprogramming. He was also interviewed in the latest issue of Our Sunday Visitor giving credit to the federal government’s financial restrictions on embryonic stem cell for the latest breakthrough using ethical stem cell research:

I think that the restrictions on funding have had an effect on how scientists approached this question, because federal funding is always seen as a form of approbation and blessing. Any time you get federal funding for something, there is a kind of “sanctioning” that occurs. And when the federal government refuses to fund something, it becomes a kind of dark spot on the entire field. That has been the practical effect, and I do suspect that because of that dark spot there has been a greater willingness to entertain alternative approaches.
