Ron Johnson promises to "repeal" all of this medical research.
For why? Because: "It's the single greatest assault on [his] Freedom in [his] lifetime." That's what Ron Johnson has said. Many, many times.
Ron Johnson's inspiration Ayn Rand called it the Virtue of Selfishness.
One firm that received $1.2M is Geron Corp., which is conducting the first trial therapies for quadriplegics using embryonic stem cells. Embryonic stem cells are derived from surplus in-vitro fertilizations that would otherwise be discarded. Johnson promised that is the first project he would abandon. We'll let him inform the quadriplegics.
Quadriplegia, I am willing to bet, is a far greater assault on freedom than any of Ron Johnson's insipid Fox News Channel talking points.
