Congress Debates Federal Embryonic Stem Cell Research Funding Program - President Promises to Veto any Funding Measures or Bills

Congress Debates Federal Embryonic Stem Cell Research Funding Program - President Promises to Veto any Funding Measures or Bills

Embryonic Stem Cell

Congress will be debating embryonic stem cell research this week, while the President has threatened to use his veto power for the first time if a funding measure is passed.  Even though polls show 70 percent of Americans support embryonic stem cell research, the President banned the use of federal funding back in 2001.

Many involved in the research say there is a potential to cure many diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.  Recent research even indicates that embryonic stem cells could be used to heal paralyzed patients.  Comment on this Article at our Forum

Stem cells are the bodies “master cells”, and are the source of all cells and tissues. They come from a ball of cells known as a blastocyst which develops five to seven days after conception.  The adult stems cells found in children and adults are less flexible in what they can become, thus making them much less useful.  The federal government has still been funding adult stem cell research.

 

Bush has taken a strong stance against embryonic stem cell research, comparing it to abortion.  The Catholic Church and some other religious organizations have also been against the research. 

Scientists believe that the more money devoted to the research, the faster we can find out if embryonic stem cells can solve these medical problems.  But even if Congress allocates money to the research, the President will likely veto it.
