Thousands of calls and emails resulted in the Senate passing H.R. 810, the bill extending stem cell research. Subsequently, the President vetoed the bill and the House did not override the veto.
The good news is that this vote, 63-37, was closer than ever before. The National MS Society continues support for expanding the potential of stem cell research in its quest to find a cure. The vote tally is available along with a map showing how each senator voted.
In my state of Texas, Kay Bailey Hutchison voted Yea and John Cornyn voted Nay. Thank you Kay.
