Stem Cell Bill Supporters Try Again

Stem Cell Bill Supporters Try Again: "In April 2007, the US Senate voted, once again, to lift restrictions on embryonic stem cell research . The bill, passed on April 11th, is the second attempt by supporters to allow federal funding for research such as regenerative medicine and therapeutic cloning using embryonic stem cell lines created after August 9, 2001. President Bush, however, has made it very clear that he intends to veto the bill, for a second time. A two-thirds majority vote is needed by the House of Representatives to override the president's veto, and it doesn't look like there are enough supporters for the stem cell bill to survive."
