ABSTRACT
The article reports that the House of Representatives has submitted the legislation to lift restrictions on federal funding for embryonic stem cell research in the U.S. The House approved the bill that the Senate submitted in April 2007, but support for the bill is still short of the two-thirds required to override the veto of U.S. President George W. Bush. President Bush objects the embryonic stem cell research because it requires the destruction of human embryos.
