"House passes stem cell research bill."

“The House of Representatives fell short of a veto-proof margin in approving legislation today to lift President George W. Bush’s 2001 ban on federal funding for new embryonic stem-cell research. Lawmakers voted 253 to 174 to expand federal funding for stem-cell research using discarded human embryos.”
