Stem Cell Vote Update

The US Senate today voted to pass both the bill funding embryonic (embryo destroying) research (but just shy of the margin required to override W's veto) and the bill funding ethical alternative research. Here are the roll call votes on the embryonic bill (S.5)and the ethical alternative bill (S.30).

Kudos to Senators Bob Casey of Pennsylvania and Ben Nelson of Nebraska, the only two Democrats to vote against S.5, the embryonic stem cell bill.
