Laura Bush Supports Hubby on Stem Cell Research

I don't know about you, but I find it refreshing to have a First Lady in the office that is truly a Lady. I applaud her courage, compusure, convictions and dignity as a woman.

And of course the big news is how she supported the President concerning restrictions on embryonic stem cell research. Why? - Because she has looked at the facts and isn't interested in emotive arguments. Not only that, but her husband is the only President who has helped fund research for stem cell research.

Here's part of an article published at Mercury News
Venturing forcefully into one of the most contentious issues of the campaign, Laura Bush on Monday defended the limits her husband has imposed on embryonic stem-cell research and criticized those who suggest that the research could lead quickly to cures for Alzheimer's and other diseases.

``I hope that stem-cell research will yield cures and therapies for a myriad of illnesses,'' Laura Bush told an audience of about 300 supporters, many of them doctors and nurses, at a campaign event in Langhorne, Pa. ``But I know that embryonic stem-cell research is very preliminary, and the implication that cures for Alzheimer's are around the corner is just not right, and it's really not fair to the people who are watching a loved one suffer from this disease."
