Credit where it’s due: John McCain has consistently advocated for embryonic stem cell research

Factcheck.org has reported on a grossly inaccurate claim by the Obama campaign the Mr Obama’s Republican opponent in the Presidential election, 2008, has “has stood in the way–he’s opposed stem cell research.”  In fact, McCain has consistently supported moves in the Senata to provide funding for embryonic stem cell research.

McCain’s running mate, Sarah Palin, has said that she opposes embryonic stem cell research where there are alternatives such as adult stem cells.  Their party calls for a blanket ban on the embryonic stem cell research, going considerably further than the Bush government.
