Sen. John McCain, R-AZ is a supporter of embryonic stem cell research

In a report from NBC News MEET THE PRESS on June 19, 2005, Mr. Russert of NBC News interviewed Senator John McCain. Senator McCain has changed his mind about embryonic (blastocystic) stem cell research since he and 19 other senators wrote a letter stating support for banning federal funding for "research in which a human embryo or embryos are destroyed."

Mr. Russert asked Sen. McCain why he had changed his mind about this research. To which Senator McCain replied:

"For a large number of reasons, ranging from getting briefed by very smart people on this issue and including discussing this with Nancy Reagan who, as you know, is a very strong advocate for stem cell research. I want to make it clear that those of us who support this do not believe that it has anything to do with human cloning and all of us are against human cloning. I look forward to the debate. It's a very complex scientific issue. But for us to throw away opportunities to cure diseases such as Parkinson's and Alzheimer's and many others I think would be a mistake. I look forward to the debate. It's interesting that more than two-thirds of the American people support stem cell research."
