Abortion backers launch “Taco or Beer Challenge,” because ice water is so cold and wet

2014-08-25_1128Around the world, famous and nonfamous people alike are filming themselves dumping or having dumped ice water on their heads in the new fad called the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.

The dunkee then pays it forward by challengingothers todo the same. Party poopersare supposedto donate $100 to the cause.

Pro-lifers oppose donating to the ALS Association because it supports research of human embryos and aborted fetal cells.

Our opposition has even made national news, which is helpful in bringing attention to ALSA’s deadlyresearch.

Pro-lifersare still enjoying the ice bucket challenge,they just donate to ethical causes. My own pastor took the challenge this weekend,asking people to donate to a clean water initiative in Africa.

But then there are abortion supporters.

Investors.com headline: “Science over politics: Nobel for adult stem cell work”

When embryonic stem cell research was being hyped during the last decade, MSM would often omit the word “embryonic” when reporting on the issue. When talking of the hope for cures, they would make it seem as if conservatives opposed all forms of stem cell research by leaving out that one vital word.

Or, when reporting on successes of adult stem cell research, the media would omit the word “adult” to further confuse the issue.

There has been a sudden and welcome about-face. Get a load of this headline:

The editorial is even more incredible. Again, this comes from Investor’s Business Daily, certainly no social conservative stronghold. An excerpt:

Sad to say, Michael J. Fox was a tool

The embryonic stem cell research industry received a second big blow last week when in an ABC interview actor and huge embryonic stem cell research proponent Michael J. Fox admitted escr isn’t panning out to be all he and others touted it to be in the fight against his own Parkinson’s disease and other maladies and injuries.

The first blow came six months ago when escr’s original proponent, Geron Corporation, announced it was cutting its losses and pulling out.

Fox admitted to Diane Sawyer:

Facts about Pepsi aborted fetal cell controversy

UPDATE, 5:03p: Brad Mattes of Life Issues Institute forwarded me a “Response to PepsiCo Denial” of involvement in the use of aborted baby cells in the event one of us received a email from PepsiCo stating:

Please know that PepsiCo does not conduct or fund research that utilizes any human tissue or cell lines derived from embryos.

And wouldn’t you know reader Pam just received such a denial from PepsiCo and forwarded it to me. So those emailing Pepsi will find LII’s paper handy.

10:29: I have received a few requests from pro-lifers like Vicki:

Can you provide some clarity to the Pepsi/cells from aborted babies controversy. I cannot sort out whether this is valid or not.

Governor who sentenced thousands of babies to death given 14 years

Former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich was just sentenced to 14 years in prison on federal corruption charges. As governor Blagojevich sentenced thousands of babies to death, signing an executive order in 2005 to fund embryonic stem cell research in Illinois. Blagojevich also filed an “emergency rule” in 2005 forcing Illinois pharmacies and pharmacists to dispense […]

Geron awarded cash grants through Obamacare for now defunct embryonic stem cell program

In my previous post I detailed how devastating it is to the embryonic stem cell industry that Geron Corporation has abruptly abandoned it. Now only one other U.S. company, Advanced Cell Technology, is running a clinical trial using embryonic stem cells with the hope of a commercial payoff.

How big a blow was Geron’s bombshell that it is bailing on embryonic stem cell research? BIG.

Out of nowhere Geron Corporation announced last week it was not only halting the first clinical trial of embryonic stem cell treatment on humans but getting out of the embryonic stem cell business altogether. To understand how big a blow to the embryonic stem cell industry this was, you first must know it was Geron […]

Britain’s got secrets: 150+ human chimeras produced over 3 years

I argued in Parliament against the creation of human-animal hybrids as a matter of principle. None of the scientists who appeared before us could give us any justification in terms of treatment. Ethically it can never be justifiable it discredits us as a country. It is dabbling in the grotesque. At every stage the […]
