In an effort to deter President Bush from blocking federal funds for embryonic stem-cell research, 80 U.S. Nobel laureates—among them DNA co-discoverers James Watson and Francis Crick, molecular biologist Hamilton O. Smith, and Edward Lewis—faxed a letter to the White House.

According to the February 22 issue of The Washington Post, the Nobel laureates say in their letter that embryonic stem cells offer great therapeutic promise, and that it would be “immoral” not to study them.
