Catholics praise Bush's veto.
Richard Doerflinger, deputy director of the U.S. bishops' Secretariat for ProLife Activities, praised the veto and Bush's insistence "that progress in treating devastating diseases must be pursued in ways that are both effective and morally sound."
"We join the president in inviting Congress and the scientific community to work together on the issue for the good of all," Doerflinger added.
Carl A. Anderson, Supreme Knight of the Knights of Columbus, said the stem-cell bill was "eminently worthy of President Bush's first veto."
"Every human life, no matter how small, should be protected in law," he said.
