The Anchoress. . .

. . .has updated with a couple of posts, one of which contains the following remarks, which make a point that doesn't seem to be made often enough:

"Let's say it one more time: The Bush Administration was the first administration to provide federal funding for stem cell research. There is NO BAN on stem cell research. There is no BAN on embryonic stem cell research within the private sector, there is a restriction on the use of federal money on embryonic stem cell research which moves outside of those lines already established in 2001. President Bush is NOT against science."

Now is the time for the administration to make this point just as succinctly, while people are still listening. It won't matter if they make the point in a few days. By then, people will be focused on something else entirely.
