I've long thought that the MA Legislature should just pass whatever it wants over Romney's veto (in fact, they should invite the veto). From Blue Mass Group
, I got this link to a NY Times article
that make it look like they are going to do just that with Stem Cell Research
"I believe it is time to send a very strong message to the nation's medical research community that they are indeed welcome here," Robert E. Travaglini, a Democrat of Boston and Cambridge who is president of the State Senate, said. "I am disappointed that the governor has chosen to send the opposite message. Rather than endorsing stem cell research, he is raising fears and unfounded doubts."
After a report on Thursday in The New York Times that Mr. Romney, a Republican, wants to ban the creating of embryos specifically for medical research, Democrats began to prepare for what promises to be a sharp political battle.
Mr. Travaglini, who introduced a bill on Wednesday that would allow the research that Mr. Romney opposes, held a news conference with the head of Massachusetts General Hospital, scientists involved in stem cell research and the mother of a girl with diabetes.
They said the governor's proposal would choke off a vital area of scientific research. Creating embryos so scientists can extract their stem cells to be used for research is the sole method to date that allows researchers to duplicate the cells of a person with an incurable disease, the scientists said.
Stem Cell research is wildly popular. Just pass the thing right through his veto -- and make sure you make him have to veto it. He just told you what he didn't want, so it's pretty easy.
