The state of Michigan continues to do a good job of promoting ethical stem cell research. The state senate approved a set of bills designed to promote adult stem cell research. They also defeated an amendment that would lift the state ban on funding for embryonic stem cell research. Michigan, which bans cloning for any purpose, has a booming biotech industry, which is what happens when you put your money and efforts into research that actually produces tangible results. This is the example that other states should be following, instead of racing to see who can throw the most money into the hopes and dreams of ineffective and unethical research on human embryos.
