ABSTRACT
The article reports on the passage of a bill by the U.S. House of Representatives which allows federal funding to be used to support research on human Embryonic Stem (ES) cell lines. According to the author, the new legislation will offer sufficient financial support to researchers to use ES cell lines from embryos discarded by fertility clinics. However, the bill needs to be approved by the Senate and President George W. Bush.
