The stem cell debate
Ann and Mitt Romney

Ann Romney has spoken out in favor of stem-cell research, provided it is done "morally and ethically." The governor has supported some forms of stem-cell research, but opposes research on human embryos. Kennedy rips Romney over stem cell policy (Boston Globe, 2/16/05)
