ABSTRACT
This article discusses the response of U.S. President George W. Bush to stem cell research efforts. Though 2006 public opinion polls display strong support for stem cell research Bush vocally disagrees with the practice and has planned to exercise a veto on legislation providing it with federal funding. Concurrent to Bush's opinion scientists have made considerable advances in the field and are suggesting stem cell usage for a myriad of different health problems.
