UPI reports that President Bush veteos stem cell research bill passed by Congress.

According to the White House, Bush vetoed the, “Stem Cell Research Enhancement Act of 2007” to maintain the current delicate balance of the nation’s stem-cell research policy. Bush said, “Compelling American taxpayers to support the deliberate destruction of human embryos would be a grave mistake and I will not allow our nation to cross this moral line… I invite policymakers and scientists to come together to solve medical problems without compromising either the high aims of science or the sanctity of human life.”
