Bush closes cells

Al Qaeda cells in Iraq? The illegal cells being operated in Guantanamo? Nope, President Bush used his first veto EVER to strike down an expansion of an embryonic stem-cell research Bill.

The legislation would have ended a restricted practice that limits human embryonic stem-cell research only to cell lines, or colonies, that were derived on or before Aug. 9, 2001, the day the policy was announced. Embryonic stem cells have the potential to turn into various types of body cells, causing hope for advances in the treatment of Parkinson’s, Alzheimer's, diabetes and other diseases.

Good to see Bush has the best interests of a "morally decent society" at heart when he turns his back on research, science and development. You can be Pro-Life and not believe that destroying every cell is murder. At least Pat Robertson and Jerry Farewell can hug it out with him.
