Don’t buy cells: Investment adviser says to let taxpayers shoulder risk

Yesterday, The Motley Fool reported: … But when it comes to [private] investing, it’s best to view the subject [of embryonic stem cell research] with as much detachment as possible….

KaiserNetwork.org reports today that the pro-abortion American Medical Association passed a resolution yesterday at its annual meeting “saying pharmacists should be required to fill all valid prescriptions or refer patients to another pharmacy or pharmacist immediately.” So much for choice.

womensissuesby Kelli

Forty years later, having won most of their early battles, the current “women’s issue” crowd now maintains there’s a war on us that won’t end until we can obtain contraception and abortion without so much as a co-payment even for women who can afford an education at Georgetown, and it must be paid for even by people who have always maintained conscientious objection.

Meanwhile, many of us have refused to assimilate, though we rarely hold press conferences about it. Bearing the wounds of the sexual revolution, we think, for our daughters’ sakes, there’s still room for discussion. Abortion and contraception (free at last, or mostly) aren’t the best we have to offer our girls….

We think the abortion-contraception damsel in distress dirge is unworthy of us, and quite disingenuous coming from women perfectly able to pay.

Our “women’s issue” sisters may be admirable for their tenacity in defining the debate, but they do not define us. We take issue with their version of “women’s issues” and we can speak for ourselves.
