MA Senate approved stem cell research bill
Arjun Mishra at 12:00 AM ET

On March 30, 2005, the Massachusetts Senate approved a bill by a vote of 35-2 to alleviate restrictions on scientists conducting research on stem cells, including the controversial embryonic stem cells. Governor Mitt Romney vociferously opposed passage of the bill. On April 1, 2005, the state House of Representatives passed the bill by a vote of 117-37, which was a margin so wide that it made the bill veto-proof. Stem cell research advocates hailed the bill for furthering potential research in combating Parkinson's Disease, Alzheimer's Disease and other debilitating diseases.
