The Berkshire Eagle<http://www.berkshireeagle.com/Stories/0,1413,101%7E6267%7E2798977,00.html>:
House passage of a bill supporting embryonic stem-cell research by a 
veto-proof margin is a victory for the state's biotechnology industry, for 
those who suffer now or will suffer from Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and other 
cruel diseases, and for scientific enlightenment at a time that occasionally 
recalls the Middle Ages. The bill, which allows the cloning of human cells 
for research purposes, makes Massachusetts the third state to expressly back 
such research, and it is encouraging to once again see the state move to the 
fore in the scientific arena. The House and Senate must reconcile their 
bills, and ideally the provision in the House bill giving a role to the 
Department of Public Health, which answers to Governor Romney, who has 
flip-flopped in opposition to this legislation, in regulating the research, 
will be abandoned. Kudos to the Berkshire legislative delegation for its 
support of this important legislation.
