  • The Washington Times says stem cell research funding is turning toward adult (instead of embryonic) stem cells, even in traditionally liberal states:

    “Money talks,” said Gene Tarne, author of papers for the Charlotte Lozier Institute that find that the bulk of stem cell funding grants in California and Maryland are moving toward “ethical” research that doesn’t use human embryos.

    “The shift looks like a sea change from when state funding strongly favored research from embryonic stem cells over “adult” stem cells, which are taken from the placenta, umbilical cord and some mature tissues and do not kill human embryos.”…

    [A] Kansas stem cell research center that, by law, won’t use stem cells culled from human embryos also is taking off….

    The center… is “a visionary move” to “support science that can actually lead to a lot of new therapies and potentially change the face of medicine,” said Dr. Buddhadeb Dawn, director of the center, which is housed at the University of Kansas Medical Center….

    Excluding embryonic stem cell research is not an impediment, Dr. Dawn said. “Adult stem cells are the ones that have been shown to be effective for patient treatment,” he said.

  • At National Review, Michael New discusses the significance of the new meta-analysis of 36 separate abortion/breast cancer link studies. The study “concluded that induced abortion raises the risk of breast cancer by 44 percent. Each of the 36 studies showed a positive correlation between abortion and breast cancer.” Despite the academic credentials and the findings, the mainstream media is showing a “circle the wagons” mentality in lock step with the abortion industry, as usual.
  • Pro-Life Action League promotes the “Empty Manger Christmas Caroling” event, to be held outside abortion facilities. Some cities are already posting their events and schedules. PLAL gives you all the resources necessary to host your own event.
  • At Life Training Institute, Dr. Rich Poupard discusses Michigan’s heavy restrictions and regulations on a surgical procedure for minors: requiring parental consent, admitting privileges for doctors, and informed consent of patients…. But is he is talking about abortion?

    If you haven’t figured it out, I’m not talking about abortion access. I’m talking about access to routine third molar surgery. These “restrictions” that I mention are dealt with every single day by my own patients, in the office where I practice. Yet the same type of standards, when applied to those adolescents seeking abortion care, are seen as some horrific barrier to care.

  • ProLife NZ shares a post from The Leading Edge regarding a New Zealand couple who was awarded compensation for personal injury – because they didn’t have the opportunity to abort their daughter, who has spina bifida, and whom they claim to love:

    It now sets a legal precedent which declares that being denied the opportunity to kill an innocent human being before birth is an act which causes injury to the persons who would have procured the killing if they had been afforded the opportunity to do so. I wonder how long it will be before someone tries to test this new ruling to see if it applies to the killing of persons without disabilities prior to birth as well – or is it just those with spina bifida and Down syndrome who come in for such prejudicial rulings in the Brave New Zealand?

  • Pro-Life Wisconsin reports that state Democrats are going for broke in introducing a bill to ban all restrictions on abortion. PLW also explains their stance that anything less than a Personhood amendment is making peace with the abortion industry.
  • Secular Pro-Life showcases the pro-life documentary, 40, which will have its world premiere on Wednesday, December 11th. Watch the trailer:
