    Nancy Reagan is a Republican, but strongly disagreed with Bush's
    veto of the SCEA.

    Since Congress makes the laws, maybe a good question would be: If Senators Obama and Biden would champion a bill that included federal funding of stem cell research… Would President McCain oppose it?

    Oppose it, got to think so. But will McCain veto the legislation? And, if he does, will there be enough votes to overturn the veto?

    Need escr supporters in the house and senate if McCain wins the White House.

    Whats the difference, if McCain gets in there will be no money for research anyhow with all his War Ideas. I'm sure too they will be encouraging people to have babies for future war soldiers, so abortion will be pretty much Taboo as there goes a potential Soldier if a Mother aborted.

    this is good news,

    The change highlights a rift between social conservatives and Republican moderates such as Michael Castle of Delaware, a Republican member of the House of Representatives and a leading supporter of lifting the funding restrictions. The change, Castle says, "was drafted by people who don't even understand the advances that have been made in embryonic stem-cell research and its future potential".


    divided they will fail, it makes it very hard for people like mr castle to vote republican in nov.
