Langevin to Continue Advocating for Embryonic Stem Cell Research
Congressman Jim Langevin (D-RI) today released the following statement after attending the White House signing of the Executive Order lifting the ban on embryonic stem cell funding:
"Attending today's signing ceremony at the White House was truly an honor for me. I, along with countless others, have spent the better part of the last eight years working for this moment when our federal government would again support the promise of embryonic stem cell research. I now look forward to working quickly with my colleagues to give this Executive Order the force of law and ensure that our nation's researchers are not hamstrung by short-sighted policies again."
"This Executive Order sends a clear signal around the world that our nation supports research based on science, not politics. I look forward to tackling the next set of challenges ahead to find cures to some of life's most chronic and challenging diseases and conditions."
