(KSL News) -- Utah Senator Orrin Hatch urged President Bush today to reconsider his stand on embryonic stem cell research.

His request came after the Senate passed legislation to loosen restrictions of federally funded stem cell research.

The president vetoed that legislation last summer, and he's promised to do it again. Supporters are fighting the veto with the faces of millions of Americans with Parkinson's, Alzheimer's and diabetes who they say could one day be cured by this research.

The House has already passed the legislation.
