got veto?

In First Veto, Bush Blocks Stem Cell Bill
President Bush today used the first veto of his presidency to stop legislation that would have lifted restrictions on federally funded human embryonic stem cell research.

"This bill would support the taking of innocent human life in the hope of finding medical benefits for others," Bush, speaking at the White House, said after he followed through on his promise to veto the bill. "It crosses a moral boundary that our decent society needs to respect. So I vetoed it."

I am not a s-m-r-t pandologist but my moral boundary feels just peachy about conducting research on cells from frozen embryos (they can't really be defrosted and turned into little boys and girls can they?) that are just going to be destroyed otherwise.
