NAF Commends the Senate for Their Support for Embryonic Stem Cell Research
NAF applauds the Senate’s 63-37 passing of the Stem Cell Research Enhancement Act on Tuesday, July 18. This legislation would expand federal funding for embryonic stem cell research and permit scientists to extract stem cells from embryos that were created for the purposes of fertility treatments.
NAF supports embryonic stem cell research, which has the potential to help find new treatments, or even cures, for those suffering from degenerative diseases such as cancer, diabetes, Parkinsons, ALS, and Alzheimers. We urge President Bush to follow Congress’s lead and sign this legislation into law
