  • 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.

  • Big Blue Wave links to an article by Matt Archbold at the National Catholic Register which claims pro-lifers are losing the abortion debate. BBW apparently agrees:

    We’ve argued for the humanity of the unborn on the assumption that people accepted the intrinsic worth of a human being. Which they now don’t, because belief in God is waning. There is no way to argue the intrinsic worth of a human being without reference to God. We have a big problem and we need to confront it, pro-lifers.

    Hmm… I wonder what Secular Pro-Life would say in response to that.

  • At the Huffington Post, Cassie Farrell responds to a piece by Canadian abortion proponent Joyce Arthur:

    What Choice Joyce and her cronies need to understand is that their lies simply aren’t cutting it in Canada anymore. Instead of formulating a sound argument, they attack the legitimacy of the debate. However, the debate is on, and isn’t going away until the right to life for all Canadians is acknowledged and ensured.

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:

  • Michael J. Fox is finally curbing his embryonic stem cell enthusiasm while lamely trying to cover his rear. He says:

    It’s not so much that [stem cell research has] diminished in its prospects for breakthroughs as much as it’s the other avenues of research have grown and multiplied and become as much or more promising. So, an answer may come from stem cell research but it’s more than likely to come from another area.

    During the interview, Fox Foundation co-founder Deborah Brooks then mentions some of the problems with putting embryonic stem cells into the brains of people with Parkinson’s. You know, the same problems pro-life people have been noting for years and the same problems that Dr. Oz told Fox about on Oprah around 3 years ago.

  • Right to Life of Michigan reports that the University of Michigan is now admitting the importance of adult stem cell research, calling it, the “holy grail of personalized medicine.”

CNN says there are “relatively slight” differences between Romney and Obama

Romney’s greatest divergences with the Obama administration are in [the social policy] area, particularly on abortion (which he has always opposed, despite taking no action on the issue as governor), stem cell research, his pro-death penalty stance and policy towards homosexuals in the military. However, with the exception of stem cell research, if elected he […]

by JivinJ, host of the blog, JivinJehoshaphat A panel of three judges on the Fifth District Court of Appeals has overturned a restraining order which prevented Texas’ sonogram law from fully taking effect. The law required an abortionist to show women considering an abortion their ultrasound and describe it. U.S. District Judge Sam Sparks had […]
