The Supreme Court said Monday that it would not hear a case challenging the Obama administration's guidelines on embryonic stem-cell research.

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.
A federal judge issued a temporary hold Monday on the Obama administration's new guidelines on human embryonic stem cell research, dealing the White House a serious setback in its efforts to promote the highly sensitive research with federal funding.
Congress passed legislation in 1996 "to ensure that Americans don't pay any more precious taxpayer dollars for needless research made irrelevant by adult stem-cell and other research," said Steven H. Aden, senior counsel for Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF). "We had hoped the U.S. Supreme Court would uphold [the law's] clear intent."
