Washington, DC – Today, Congressman Bruce Braley (IA-01) released the following statement after the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia ruled in favor of allowing the federal government to keep funding human embryonic stem cell research:

 

"I applaud the court’s decision in this important case. Stem cell research has the possibility of leading to cures for illnesses such as diabetes, Parkinson’s, and Alzheimer’s. For me, this isn’t a Republican or Democratic issue – it’s a personal one. My own nephew suffers from juvenile diabetes, and I stand with former First Lady Nancy Reagan in support of the research that might one day save his life."
