Senator Murray Urges Support for Embryonic Stem Cell Research

Aug 09 2001

Calls on President Bush to "do the right thing" for patients, provide federal investment

Stem cell research offers real hope for patients across our country. This research is about improving medicine, and in many cases, saving lives. We cannot delay this hope by continuing to delay federal support. We cannot shortchange patients and their families by eliminating one of the most promising fields in medical research. For the sake of those who are suffering, I urge President Bush to do the right thing, to remove politics from this debate, and offer his unequivocal support for stem cell research.
