The Justice Department will appeal a federal court ruling that temporarily blocked federal funding for embryonic stem cell research.

Government officials say if the ruling is upheld, dozens of experiments aimed at fighting spinal cord injuries and Parkinson's disease will be stopped.

A judge granted the injunction Monday because he said the research violated federal law.
