Since this apparently used non-embryonic stem cells, theoretically the fundies can be happy about it. But somehow I imagine they'll find a reason to object anyway.
They won't be. One of the lies they're spreading to get people to oppose stem cell research is that it caused no breakthroughs whatsoever in the last eight years. (Another lie is that that somehow implies that it's worthless.)
Well yeah, if something doesn't yield results immediately, you should abandon it without a second thought.
