Statement from Governor Gregoire Regarding Presidential Stem Cell Veto

For Immediate Release: July 20, 2006

“I am very disappointed that President Bush chose to continue severely restrictive limitations on stem cell research. In doing so, he ignored the bipartisan effort to pass this important legislation as well as the opinion of the majority of Americans who support this form of research.

“This vital research may hold the cures to terrible diseases such as cancer, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. Exploring viable opportunities can improve the quality of life for people living with these and other serious illnesses.”
