Pell funding adult stem cell research

The Sydney Archdiocese is reported to be offering a $100,000 grant to scientists who wish to carry out adult stem cell research. This is a very important gesture by the Catholic Church in Australia, as it makes the point that to be pro-life is not to be anti-science, it is to embrace ethical scientific research and where possible to promote and fund it.
