Oklahoma

EMBRYONIC STEM CELL research is neither supported nor conducted in the state of Oklahoma. On July 18, 2006, both Oklahoma senators voted against a proposed bill (H.R.810) that would amend the Public Health Service Act to provide federal funding for research on human embryonic stem cells. These two Oklahoma senators were Tom Coburn and Jim Inhofe. The bill was nevertheless passed by the Senate but was later vetoed by President George W. Bush.

At Oklahoma University, coursework that touches on stem cell research typically uses the topic to generate discussions, rather than to teach about stem cell biology.
