The Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation Expresses Disappointment,Over President Bush's Veto of the Stem Cell Research Enhancement,Act

600 Pennsylvania Avenue. We will not give up, not ever.

"Christopher and Dana Reeve passionately pursued the advancement of unfettered scientific research and some day soon, we hope to see their dreams become reality. The President's 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. Therefore, it remains vitally important that we continue the legislative fight to secure Federal funding of embryonic stem cell research that will provide greater opportunities for potential cures and treatments of countless diseases and disabilities," Kiernan concluded.

The CDRF thanks the 247 members of the House of Representatives as well as the 63 Senators who listened to the voices of the American people and supported the Stem Cell Research Enhancement Act. It is the organization's hope that the scientists and laboratories can overcome this temporary setback.
