President Bush Hints Opposition to Embryonic Stem-cell Research

Mar 1, 2001

On January 26, President Bush all but announced he would oppose the use of federal funds for research using stem cells from aborted fetuses.

According to Reuters Health, when asked whether he would sign an executive order to ban such research, Bush said, "I will let you know when I decide all policy decisions."

The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, in a January 26 press release, stated, "We hope the Administration will allow the National Institutes of Health to continue to support this area of research that is critical to finding a cure for juvenile diabetes and many other diseases such as Parkinson's, Alzheimer's and spinal-cord injuries."
