The article presents the views of several politicians in the U.S. about embryonic stem-cell research. In his radio address to the nation on August 7, 2004, John Kerry, a member of the Democratic Party, said that stem-cell research must not be banned. U.S. President George W. Bush says that he favors funding research using existing stem-cell lines but not funding research to create stem-cell lines because it involves the destruction of human embryos.
