Stem cell research has promising potential to treat a plethora of diseases. The vast majority of therapeutic benefits come from adult stem cells from donors, not from the controversial and unethical embryonic stem cell lines obtained from aborted children.

Nevertheless, the federal government has no lawful jurisdiction over medical or scientific research, neither to fund it, nor to regulate it, nor to prohibit it. The federal government is limited to specifically-enumerated powers, and the Tenth Amendment says that the powers not delegated to the federal government belong to the states and to the people. The federal government has lawful authority in only three crimes: treason, pirating, and counterfeiting.

Of course stem cell research should be regulated, and of course the exploitation of pre-born children should be criminalized, but this is outside of the jurisdiction of the federal government. The leaders of the federal government, who take an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution, should keep their promise and cease from all funding and regulation of stem cell research.

States should exercise their lawful sovereignty over the matter and nullify all federal mandates on stem cell research. They should defy any unlawful and immoral federal attempt to justify the killing and experimentation of some innocent children. States should criminalize the killing and exploitation of these pre-born children by abortion and by stem cell researchers, and regulate ethical stem cell research to ensure that our natural God-given rights are protected.
