DeGette reintroduces stem cell act, touts health and economic benefits

Colorado First District Representative Diana DeGette has re-introduced her Stem Cell Research Advancement Act. She's announcing the move at Craig Hospital today in Colorado. An earlier version of the bi-partisan legislation passed in the House and Senate before being vetoed by President Bush. The re-introduction of the bill will test attitudes among members of the Republican-controlled Congress this year on stem cell research, which has remained a hot-button topic in strict anti-abortion circles even as stem-cell research methods progress and have already reached a point where many believe the original ethical arguments against the practice have become moot.
