Supporting Stem Cell Research

Three Colorado government leaders are lending their names in support of federal funding for stem cell research.

Senator Ben Nighthorse Campbell lost his father to Alzheimer's disease. Representative Mark Udall's father suffered from Parkinson's disease, and Representative Diana DeGette has a daughter with Type 1 diabetes.

Support is gaining momentum with the death of President Ronald Reagan but there's currently a federal ban on funding most research that extracts stem cells from human embryos.

Fifty-eight Senators have sent a letter to President Bush to lift the ban.
