Abstract

The laws, regulations, and policies relevant to embryonic research and genetic research in the United States have separate histories. The United States has supported at the federal level genetic research - and bioethics on that research - yet the government has a history of not supporting embryonic research, in part due to the political nature of the abortion issue. Because of the difference in support, American laws, regulations, and policies on embryonic research and genetic research, research on stem cells wavers in the United States.
