Stem Cell Ruling Deserves Quick Reversal

We have to hope that the unexpected court ruling stalling vital stem cell work at UW-Madison and elsewhere is swiftly appealed, overturned and finally buried.

Stem cell research holds the keys to the relief of suffering; overseas researchers will gain an advantage and an industry nurtured here could easily be permanently damaged if the ruling is not defeated in court, or legislatively.

Little surprise that the Republicans in the race for Governor hailed the decision - - remember that these are the candidates making big job-creating promises and boast that they lead the party of business but are cheering what could cost creative and high-paying jobs just West of the State Capitol.

They don't want to create any jobs that they or Wis Mfgrs and Commerce can't control.
