WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Supporters and opponents of human embryonic stem cell research promoted their positions on Wednesday ahead of a congressional vote on the issue, but the White House made clear it disapproves of any changes in legislation.
Proponents of expanded federal funding for work on human embryonic stem cells have reintroduced a bill to do so in the House of Representatives and plan a vote on Thursday. Last July, President George W. Bush exercised his first and only veto to stop the measure after it passed the House and Senate.
