ABSTRACT
The article reports that U.S. Democratic Congresswoman Diana DeGette has said that if U.S. President George W. Bush vetoes liberalisation of stem cell regulations, he will risk damaging Republicans' chances in this year's congressional elections. DeGette was speaking in London, England, on June 1, 2006 while on a bipartisan congressional delegation investigating how Great Britain regulates stem cell research. The U.S. Senate is expected to back the loosening of restrictions on stem cell research in a few weeks' time. The idea of the proposed law, approved a year ago by the U.S. House, is to make embryonic stem cells more freely available to federally funded stem cell researchers.
