William Saletan discusses Senator Bill Frist's history with prolife issues.
Douglas Scott, the president of Life Decisions International goes over the edge with his critique of National Right to Life's statement regarding Bill Frist's statement on embryonic stem cell research.
I find it unfortunate when prolife leaders feel the need to demean another prolife organization because they disagree with how they handle a situation. Maybe National Right to Life too often takes the diplomatic approach when dealing with politicians who don't completely measure up but that's probably because they're working with these legislators on a daily basis.
Jill Stanek covers another case of successful treatment with stem cells. Too bad the reporter never mentions that they came from adult stem cells which I keep getting told are "less promising" than embryonic stem cells.
Pro-choice groups continue to tell us that RU-486 aka Mifepristone aka medical abortion is safe and effective. I wonder if they've read this article by Dr. Ralph Miech.
His data synthesis states, "Mifepristone, by blocking both progesterone and glucocorticoid receptors, interferes with the controlled release and functioning of cortisol and cytokines. Failure of physiologically controlled cortisol and cytokine responses results in an impaired innate immune system that results in disintregration of the body's defense system necessary to prevent the endometrial spread of C. sordellii infection. The abnormal cortisol and cytokine responses due to mifepristone coupled to the release of potent exotoxins and an endotoxin from C. sordellii are the major contributors to the rapid development of lethal septic shock."
