Governments have problems with such a research if the basic is
more than just helping people with what is basically their own !
Their major concern is that laboratories, funded with private
money will get on top of things and see their research within
a more economical setting...basically " selling " back what people
gave them in the first place.
Who will be selected and on what grounds will the selection
take place, what are the ways by which it all operates and
functions; who and in what a way will the information be
spreaded and how will the communication take place !?
Governments loose a certain amount of control over those
they supposed to paternalise if they let stem cell research on
