Congressman Akin Votes against Federal Funding of Embryonic Stem Cell Research

Congressman Todd Akin (R-MO), released the following statement regarding his vote against spending federal funds for embryonic stem cell research today:

"Given that it is inappropriate to fund controversial research that creates life to ultimately be destroyed, especially when more responsible stem cell research is promising even greater results, I am committed to voting with like minded colleagues to uphold the President's promised veto.

"It's inappropriate to use taxpayer dollars to fund a procedure that many view as the taking of human life."
