ABSTRACT
The author reports that the newly Democratic-controlled U.S. House of Representatives has passed legislation allowing embryonic stem cell research using unwanted, donated frozen embryos from fertility clinics. The U.S. Senate is expected to pass the legislation. The administration of U.S. President George W. Bush said it opposed the legislation. A presidential veto of legislation can be overturned by a two-thirds majority in both houses of the Congress. Polls show that most Americans are in favor of stem cell research for diseases, such as Parkinson's and Alzheimer's.
