ABSTRACT
The article reports on the veto issued by U.S. President George W. Bush regarding the Senate approval of the Stem Cell Research Enhancement Act regarding the debate over the use of federal funds for human embryonic stem cell research. The Stem Cell Research Enhancement Act would have allowed the government to fund research on cell lines created after August 2001 that met specific ethical standards. Human embryonic stem cells are derived from several-day-old embryos and can theoretically differentiate into virtually any type of human cell, from blood cells to skin cells. Proponents of federal support for embryonic stem cell research argue that excess embryos left over from in vitro fertilization and are slated to be destroyed could be donated for research.
