Statement from Robert Dold on the Federal Court Ruling to Halt Stem Cell Research

Statement

Location: Winnetka, IL

Yesterday, a U.S. District Judge blocked the federal government from funding research involving human embryonic stem cells. This decision reversed the Obama administration's stem cell funding policy that had expanded federal support for the research.

"I support stem cell research and believe we must embrace opportunities for breakthroughs in the field of medicine. Yesterday's court ruling was a setback to the advancement offered by this promising research, and I hope that the decision will be appealed," said Dold. "I agreed with President Obama's decision to lift the previous restrictions on stem cell research and expand the federal funds available to researchers. As a Congressman, I will support stem cell research."
