ABSTRACT
The article presents a message from U.S. President George W. Bush addressed to the House of Representatives on July 19, 2006, citing his reasons for returning the Stem Cell Research Enhancement Act of 2005 without his approval. Bush believes that science offers temptations to manipulate human life and violate human dignity. Under his administration, funding was allocated for research provided that it is done only on embryonic stem cell lines derived from embryos that had already been destroyed.
