The government said Friday it's back in the business of funding embryonic stem cell research _ at least for now _ after an appeals court temporarily lifted a judge's ban.

Aden, senior counsel for Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF). "We had hoped the U.S. Supreme Court would uphold [the law's] clear intent."
