Kerry Says Bush Stem Cell Veto Hurts Science
Sen. John Kerry issued the following statement in response to President Bush's veto of legislation that would expand stem cell research.
"When this president uses one of his rare vetoes to block one of the most important pieces of legislation of the year, it speaks volumes about his view of science, research and the need to help the millions of people who are suffering from debilitating disease," Kerry said. "I am so disappointed in this veto, but ultimately not surprised. To add insult to injury, the president today announced an unfunded, symbolic executive order meant to gloss over the real impact of his veto. It's a false choice and I strongly hope that this Congress will override the veto."
