Stem Cell Case

(CNN)--A win today for supporters of stem-cell research on human embryos.

A federal judge sided with the Obama administration and dismissed a lawsuit that tried to block funding for the research.

Some scientists believe embryonic stem cells could help treat many diseases and disabilities.

But, there's a big controversy over the research, because it requites human embryos to be destroyed-- something many opponents believe is morally wrong.

The plaintiffs in the case still have the option of appealing the decision.
