"Stem Cell Research Enhancement Act of 2007" (S. 5): passage

House Roll Call No. 443
110th Congress, 1st Session

Passed: 247-176 (see complete tally)

The "Stem Cell Research Enhancement Act" (S. 5), sponsored by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nv.), would mandate federal funding of the type of stem cell research that requires the killing of human embryos.  This bill would overturn President Bush's policy that prohibits such funding.  NRLC strongly opposes S. 5.  On this roll call, by a vote of 247 to 176, the the House gave final approval to S. 5, clearing the bill to be sent to President Bush, who had already said he would veto it.  S. 5 was supported by 210 Democrats and 37 Republicans.  It was opposed by 16 Democrats and 160 Republicans.  Roll call no. 443, June 7, 2007.  (Note:  S. 5 is similar to H.R. 3, which the House approved on January 11, 2007, on the roll call that appears in column no. 1 in this scorecard.  However, the Senate subsequently chose to act on its own version of the bill, S. 5, rather than passing H.R. 3.)
