"Senators Seek Compromise With Bush on Stem Cells"
"Members of the U.S. Senate are making another attempt at persuading President Bush to allow greater flexibility on the use of embryonic stem cells in federally supported research.

The president said the provision would encourage the destruction of embryos, which he called human lives."
