Reid: Stem Cell Bill Offers Real Hope To Million Of Americans

Washington, DC– Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid today issued the following statement after the Senate passed S. 5, the Stem Cell Bill:

“The Senate today passed an important bill that offers real hope to millions of Americans suffering from debilitating diseases and conditions. Americans by a huge majority favor stem cell research because they see the suffering of their own friends and relatives, they hear the opinions of experts and they put their faith in science.

“As Americans wait for progress, our scientists and innovators are marking time, waiting for President Bush to keep hope alive.”
