U.S. district court rules against stem cell policy

WASHINGTON, Aug 23 (Reuters) - A U.S. district court issued a preliminary injunction on Monday stopping federal funding of human embryonic stem cell research, saying it involves the destruction of human embryos.

The court ruled in favor of a suit filed in June by a researcher who objected to the Obama administrations new guidelines allowing federal funding of the controversial research. (Reporting by Jeremy Pelofsky)
