The last decade's culture wars drove some states to fund stem cell research
It wasn't what President George W. Bush had in mind. In 2001, Bush restricted the use of federal funding for embryonic stem cell research, giving conservatives what looked like a major victory in the nation's culture wars. Three years later California thumbed its nose at the ban by starting its own multibillion-dollar stem cell program, and several states followed suit. Even though the restrictions were lifted in 2009, the insurgent movement survived and grew.
