In 2012, when a “Family Guy” episode aired depicting character Peter Griffith having a stroke, $150 million in federal grants went to embryo-destructive research. Despite all the funding dedicated to embryo-destructive research, embryonic stem cells had not yielded a single viable treatment by 2012, but adult stem cells had.
