One more stance the republican California governor takes opposite the President.

Campaign for Children and Families reported: On Thursday, Gov. Schwarzenegger authorized $150 million in loans for human embryonic stem cell research. State Treasurer Phil Angelides, chair of the government's human embryonic stem cell committee, authorized $200 million last year for the same Frankensteinian goal.

Randy Thomasson, president of CCF said:

"There are major ethical and scientific problems with human embryonic stem cell research. Schwarzenegger and Angelides are blind to the fact that human embryonic stem cell research hasn't helped anyone but the corporate interests, whose pockets are filling up with taxpayer dollars."
