More on the US Embryonic Stem Cell Research Policy Turn-around

Having just finished replying to a comment to my blog post yesterday on this topic, the news reached me that the US Department of Justice intends to appeal the injunction of Judge Lamberth. Today, the day after, renowned US bioethics scholar Art Caplan reacts with admirably restrained rage in a comment that fiercely attacks the argument made by Judge Lamberth, as well as giving some additional insight into what sort of gatherings, forces and petty interests are behind the suits leading up to yesterday's ruling.

So my guess was right, we have only seen the first moves in what will presumably be a long legal dance. A dance, I have claimed, that is built on hypocricy and outright foolishness - as so often when dogmatism meets real life.
