WASHINGTON (AP) - Ignoring President Bush's veto threat,
the House voted Tuesday to lift limits on embryonic stem
cell research, a measure supporters said could accelerate
cures for diseases but opponents viewed as akin to abortion.
Bush called the bill a mistake and said he would veto it.
The House approved it by a 238-194 vote, far short of the
two-thirds majority that would be needed to override a veto.
