Jill Stanek, the nurse who called out her former employer, Christ Hospital, for delivering unborn children alive and leaving them to die in a utility room, has started a blog. I'll add her to my blogroll as it seems she already caught a hang of blogging after a couple of days.
In one of her posts she links to a Washington Times article that quotes Congressman Dave Weldon on why some researchers might be pushing embryonic stem cells over stem cells from umbilical cord blood or adult stem cells.
"If you developed a highly successful intervention for treating sickle cell anemia with cord blood, that is not really a patentable intervention under our current laws," Mr. Weldon explained. But, he noted, someone who developed the same treatment with embryonic stem cells would become a millionaire.
