Advocates of ESC research in the US House and Senate are facing an inevitable Presidential veto of the ESC research funding bill that passed in the House and will likely pass through the Senate sometime in the near future and are looking for another way to push this legislation through. They now plan on attaching the measure to some other must-pass bill. This is to signify to the American people that they are serious about promoting and expanding ESC research at all costs and we should not give in without a fight. The science and hope is on our side, especially after the recent discovery of the pluripotency of stem cells found in amniotic fluid. Let your congressmen know that you do not want more of your tax dollars to be spent on unethical and unproven medical research.
