ABSTRACT
This article reports that U.S. President George W. Bush blocked legislation passed by Congress that would have removed some restrictions on stem cell research. This was the president's first veto, which the Senate and House of Representatives failed to overturn. Bush claims that allowing the research would force American tax payers to pay for the destruction of human embryos, which are destroyed anyway if not used in research.
