Bush promises veto on embryonic stem cell bill

The White House has released this statement on Mike Castle's embryonic stem cell bill.

It says that, "If H.R. 810 were presented to the President, he would veto the bill."

On a side note, I wonder how Christopher Reeve's widow, Dana Reeve, (pictured next to Mike Castle at this web site) can support Castle's bill. According to Reeve, "That's where you get stem cells from. This is not a baby. It's not an embryo. It is pre-embryonic. This is something that would not, once it was implanted, turn into a human being." (Emphasis mine)

But Castle's legislation, The Stem Cell Research Enhancement Act of 2005, states that embryonic stem cells would be eligible for funding if, "The stem cells were derived from human embryos that have been donated from in vitro fertilization clinics....."
