A federal judge has temporarily blocked federal funding for embryonic stem cell research.

U.S. District Judge Royce Lamberth says the research violates a federal law that bans using taxpayer money to destroy embryos.

The ruling is a major setback for the Obama Administration. Just last year, it issued guidelines expanding embryonic stem cell research.
