What is your opinion of President Bush's decision to permit limited federal funding of embryonic stem cell research?

Poll dates: August 12 - 19, 2001
Total Votes: 1,005

On August 9, 2001, President Bush approved limited federal funding of research using embryonic stem cells, citing the potential of this research to cure many diseases, including juvenile diabetes, as the basis for his decision. Based on this poll, it's clear that a majority of people are interested in the US Government funding research using embryonic stem cells (87% in favor).

Almost half of our respondents feel that President Bush didn't go far enough. They'd like to see unrestricted funding of embryonic stem cell research. About two in five people feel that the President's decision was a good compromise. About one in ten feels that research using embryonic stem cells should be prohibited.
