  • In the LA Times, Sally Lehrman blames the media (and not the scientists) for people in CA wondering where all the embryonic stem cell cures they were promised are:
  • It’s no surprise that the initiative’s proponents made big promises: They had something to sell. But instant miracles are uncommon in science, and journalists should do a better job making that clear….

    The Proposition 71 proponents (including researchers) oversold embryonic stem cell research so they could get their $3 billion and the media (ever eager to stick one to pro-lifers) were their faithful sidekicks.

  • The BBC is reporting that approximately 80 unborn children a year conceived via IVF are aborted in Great Britain. The number includes “selective reduction” abortions:
  • The exact reasons for the terminations – which amount to an average of about 80 a year – are unclear, but will include medical problems with the foetus as well as social grounds, such as a relationship breakdown.

  • A couple more memos from Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan regarding life issues have surfaced.

    On the late-term abortion bill, “I support an exception that takes effect only when a woman faces real, serious health consequences,” Kagan handwrote on the draft of a letter Clinton was penning to a Catholic bishop dismayed by the veto….
    She wrote in 1998 that encouraging a new federal law banning assisted suicide would be “a fairly terrible idea.”

  • A young man in TX named Adonai Lira has been arrested after kidnapping and beating his girlfriend:
  • Investigators said the victim, who is in her 1st trimester, woke up in the driveway of the suspect’s brother’s house, where she was still being attacked. According to the warrant, Lira carried her inside, where the abuse continued…..
    According to the arrest document, he told the victim if she was not going to be with him, her pregnancy would end. Deputies said he caused her to have an abortion. Investigators said she complied with his demands to calm him down.
