President Bush Ignores America's Plea for Support of Stem Cell,Research

WASHINGTON, June 20, 2007 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following statement may be attributed to Sean Tipton, president, Coalition for the Advancement of Medical Research (CAMR):

"In the face of spiraling health care costs, President Bush once again used the stroke of his veto pen deliberately to hamper the progress of scientific and medical research, as well as endanger the future health and well being of the American people. His executive order directing NIH to continue pursuing alternate forms of research is nothing new, since NIH has already been conducting this research for the past 20 years. President Bush isn't fooling anyone with this executive order; and the fact that it doesn't change the policy adds insult to injury for the millions of patients who suffer every day.

"With this veto, President Bush has sent the message that it is more important to throw an embryo into a IVF clinic's garbage can, than it is to find cures and treatments for diseases and disorders like cancer, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, diabetes, and spinal cord injuries.

"With this veto, President Bush has made it clear to the citizens of this great nation that he will continue to rely on factually incorrect information and the political pressure of an extremist minority on this issue.

"With this veto, President Bush ignored the overwhelming majority in the medical, scientific, and spiritual communities who believe stem cell research holds the key to unlocking the future of better treatments and cures.

"With this veto, President Bush turned the page to start yet another chapter in a Presidential legacy of errors in judgment and bad decisions that needlessly cost American lives in the process.

"More than 100 million Americans suffer from debilitating diseases and disorders for which embryonic stem cell research holds great promise. Despite our anger and disgust at this second, most misguided veto , we will continue to do whatever we can to advance embryonic stem cell research in America. We will always be grateful for the strong, bipartisan support on this issue in both the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives, and among the American people."

The Coalition for the Advancement of Medical Research (CAMR) is the nation's leading pro-cures coalition. It is comprised of nationally recognized patient organizations, universities, scientific societies, and foundations advocating for the advancement of breakthrough research and technologies in regenerative medicine -- including stem cell research and somatic cell nuclear transfer -- in order to cure disease and alleviate suffering for individuals.
