Urge Your Representative to Support the Stem Cell Research Enhancement Act Today!
This week, the U.S. House of Representatives will consider the Stem Cell Research Enhancement Act of 2007 (H.R. 3), which lifts existing federal restrictions and expands the number of stem cell lines that are eligible for federally funded research. NAF strongly supports this important legislation, which passed the House and Senate last year with strong bipartisan support. Unfortunately, it was then vetoed by President Bush.
The Stem Cell Research Enhancement Act promotes potentially life-saving embryonic stem cell research that could benefit millions of Americans, and such research has the potential to help find new treatments for diseases like cancer, diabetes, Parkinsons, ALS and Alzheimers. Please urge your Representative to support this important legislation!
