Statement of the ADA Expressing Disappointment in President Bush

Diabetes.Blog.com :: A devastating setback

Alexandria, VA (July 19, 2006) – Lawrence T. Smith, Chair of the American Diabetes Association (ADA) and the parent of a daughter who has type 1 diabetes, and Dana Lewis, a teen from Huntsville, Alabama who has type 1 diabetes and is the ADA’s National Youth Advocate today issued the following statements in response to today’s veto by President Bush of the Stem Cell Research Enhancement Act (H.R. 810). Earlier today, Lewis presented a petition, signed by approximately 11,000 Americans affected by diabetes, urging the President to sign the bill. The ADA has been a strong supporter of the bill, which would accelerate medical advancements by easing existing restrictions and supporting research that uses embryonic stem cells, while maintaining strict ethical guidelines.

Said Smith: “This is a devastating setback for the 20.8 million American children and adults with diabetes – and those who love and care for them. We truly believe that embryonic stem cell research offers the greatest promise for a cure for diabetes. Despite bipartisan support in Congress, the backing of 70 percent of the American public, and the hopes and prayers of millions of individuals with diabetes and other debilitating diseases, the President has chosen the wrong path.”. . . .
