Scientists Dismayed by Stem Cell Research Ruling

tunately," he added, "there's still a lot of research on non-embryonic stem cells that is showing a lot of promise and going into clinical trials."

Sean Tipton, a spokesman for the American Society of Reproductive Medicine, said in a statement that the organization was "deeply disappointed" in the decision.

"This injunction blocks important research on how to unlock the enormous potential of human embryonic stem cells. It will be incredibly disruptive and once again drive the best scientific minds into work less likely to yield treatments for conditions from diabetes to spinal cord injury," he said.

On Monday, Chief Judge Royce C. Lamberth, of the Federal District Court for the District of Columbia, issued a temporary injunction on the Obama administration's policy expanding stem cell research. Lamberth was appointed in 1987 by then-President Ronald Reagan.

The suit was brought by Nightlight Christian Adoptions and several other organizations. "We do not want to see stem cell research that would destroy embryos," Ron Stoddart, executive director of Nightlight, told The New York Times. "Embryos are preborn human life that should be protected, and not destroyed. If there was a way of extracting the stem cells without destroying them, I would not be opposed to it."

Stoddart also said that the plaintiffs wanted government rules to hark back to the status quo under the Bush administration.

Scientists said they are somewhat muddled on how the decision affects stem cell research labs across the country.

"It's not clear what labs will have to do," Klitzman said. "The deci
