However, when HHS proposed to rescind the rule, it also asked for comment "on whether the objectives of the ... rule might also be accomplished through non-regulatory means."

The Secular Coalition for America opposed the adoption of the original rule. Now in a comment letter on the rescission proposal the Secular Coalition has told HHS -- completely rescind the rule. There is no middle ground.   Read more »

President Obama Keeps Stem Cell Promise, Puts Science Above Theology

The Secular Coalition for America is pleased that President Obama has signed an executive order ending his predecessor's restrictions on stem cell research.
