WASHINGTON, April 11 /-USNewswire/ -- I am pleased to join millions of Americans in thanking Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Senators on both sides of the aisle for putting partisan differences aside and passing S. 5, the Stem Cell Research Enhancement Act. It's a great day for scientists and patients across this country.

    This vote reaffirms the Senate's commitment to funding embryonic stem cell research that provides hope to patients and families living with diseases and disorders including cancer, diabetes, spinal cord injuries, heart disease, Alzheimer's and even Parkinson's.

    Today a majority of the U.S. Senate, a majority of the House of Representatives and over 70% of Americans support expanding funding for stem cell research. I am hopeful that President Bush will consider their wishes and not stand in the way by vetoing this important legislation.
