I’ve been saving good articles and columns these past few days that I simply have not had time to post. But I don’t want them to slip by unnoticed. So here’s a wrap-up. “Think fetuses can’t feel pain? Try telling them that,” by Steve Calvin, MD, StarTribune.com, August 30 “Access to Abortion Pared at State [...]
Yesterday, Tim posted thoughts by Justin Taylor on the JAMA fetal pain controversy. As you know, I also wrote of the fetal pain controversy in my WorldNetDaily.com column today. I have additional thoughts on John’s commentary, specifically on his following points: I have a hard time getting emotionally invested in the issue of fetal pain…. [...]
My column today on WND.com, “Hush, little fetus,” skims through the evolution of fetal pain research.

PFAW says Roberts on the SC will “endanger much of the progress made by the nation in civil rights over the past half-century.” But the Committee for Justice reminds us to consider recent amicus [...]
