This will not impact the abortion issue because of federal preemption. But the Alabama Supreme Court has accepted that fetuses and embryos “from the earliest stages of development,” qualify as a “child” under Alabama law. The case involves a law that criminalizes exposing a child to harmful chemicals. Sarah Janie Hicks took cocaine while pregnant, […]

I reported here a bit ago about how some hospitals in the UK were using the bodies of aborted and miscarried fetuses as fuel for the heating system. Now, dead fetuses are being incinerated to create electricity in Oregon and Canada. From the Lifesitenews story: The British Columbia Health Ministry has admitted that the remains of […]

Post’s Junk Biology Pushes Human Cloning

Thumbnail image for Post’s Junk Biology Pushes Human Cloning

Here we go again! Now that human cloning has been done with adult cells, the pro-cloning crowd pushes it using junk biology–just as they did in years past. First at bat: The Washington Post in an editorial. It acknowledges that embryonic stem cell research is controversial because it destroys embryos. Then, it pretends that human […]

I’ve seen it again and again in my more than twenty years of opposing assisted suicide: the media promote suicide in the guise of reporting the news. Indeed, these days, it is almost a universal rule. Here’s the biased–both by what is reported and what isn’t–usual pattern: 1. Make sure the headline promotes assisted suicide, particularly important since […]

Once Dolly the sheep was manufactured, human cloning was always mostly a matter of developing the right technique. As I described elsewhere, it was a bit ago using fetal cells. Now it has apparently been done with adult cells by Robert Lanza of Advanced Cell Technology. From the Time story: ​​In this case, cells from a 35-year-old man […]

Pregnancy, why bother?

There are those hushed, polite conversations when people wondered why Tag Romney and his wife, who already had three children naturally, chose to have three more children via gestational surrogacy.  The celebrity surrogate pregnancy stories always raise more eyebrows.  Why did Sarah Jessica Parker, already a proven birth mother, use another woman’s body to have […]

Govt. Pay Seniors to Sign Advance Directive?

Thumbnail image for Govt. <i>Pay</i> Seniors to Sign Advance Directive?

I am in favor of advance directives. And I usually like Senator Tom Coburn, But this idea seems wrong-headed to me. Coburn has introduced the Medicare Choices Empowerment and Protection Act, that would pay Medicare beneficiaries to prepare an advance directive.
