Kerry on House Passage of Stem Cell Legislation

Today, Senator John Kerry (D-Mass.) made the following statement on the House passage of life-saving stem cell legislation. President Bush has vowed to veto the stem cell bill. The bill passed the House 247-176, falling short of a veto proof margin.

"Today the promise of life-saving stem cell research came one step closer to becoming reality," Senator Kerry said. "President Bush needs to put aside politics and rigid ideology, and listen to doctors, ethicists and scientists who believe in the potential of stem cell therapy to cure disease and save lives. The hope this research presents is immeasurable. This White House has presented Americans with a false choice between honoring human life and promoting the science and research that can save it. We can have both, and we will have both, and it's time the President does the right thing."
