ABSTRACT
The article reports on the decision of U.S. President George W. Bush to veto a bill allowing federal funding of new embryonic stem cell research. Bush said that the bill would support the taking of innocent human life in the hope of finding medical benefits for others. Polls suggest that the majority of Americans support such research as scientists say that it can lead to cures for a number of serious illnesses.
