The Senate passed their embryonic stem cell bill yesterday that would use Federal money to fund embryonic stem cell research. Mike and several colleagues had a press conference yesterday with lots and lots of little snowflake babies. These are the babies who were frozen embryos, but have been adopted. I think that was the highlight of Mike's day. He said one baby was grabbing him at the podium while he was trying to talk. This afternoon, the President will veto this bill which also passed the House. Mike has been invited to attend the signing. Please pray for our president. He hasn't liked using the veto pen much, but this took courage. I am sure he will be criticized for standing for life.
After the president vetoes the bill, the debate will begin on the floor of the House to override the veto. There will be lots of debate, and the vote may be late tonight to sustain the veto. Please pray for the members to stand strong for life.
