  • Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, a venture capital firm in CA, is planning to invest in iZumi Bio, Inc., a company which will focus on induced pluripotent stem cells.

    Federal authorities are investigating the actions of a Catholic charity in Richmond which helped a 16-year-old Guatemalan girl to receive an abortion in January, in possible violation of VA law….


    The unnamed girl, who already had one child, had been fitted with a contraceptive device provided by CCR two months earlier, the letter said. CCR members signed the consent form necessary for a minor to have an abortion and had someone drive her to and from the abortion clinic.
    It is illegal in VA for a social worker to sign a parental consent form for an abortion. The state’s notification law stipulates that at least one parent, grandparent or adult sibling must give consent.
