Pelosi: Bush Veto of Stem Cell Bill Says 'No' to the Hopes of Million of Families Across America

WASHINGTON, June 20, 2007 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued the following statement today in response to President Bush's veto of the stem cell bill:

"Once again, the President has ignored the will of the American people, of leading medical researchers, and of a bipartisan majority of the Congress. His cruel veto says 'no' to the hopes of million of families across America.

"Stem cell research offers the potential of lifesaving treatment and enjoys the overwhelming support of the American people.

"Every family in America is just one diagnosis, one phone call, or one accident away from benefiting from embryonic stem cell research. Science has the potential to answer the prayers of America's families; it is irresponsible for the President and many Congressional Republicans to stand in the way of such progress."
