Life Links 9/20/06

A woman and her son received a combined $4.1 million after doctors in New York state botched her abortion and her son survived. The case was settled during jury selection.

A forum on stem cell research with three proponents of embryonic stem cell research (apparently no opponents) will be taking place in Flint from 6-8 p.m. on Monday, September 25. Maybe a certain blogger from Midland will be able to make it and dialogue with his good friend Andy Meisner. Notice how the article says Michigan has a "ban on stem cell research." I wonder where the article writer got that incorrect idea?

Michigan State's newspaper has an article on a recent visit to a local parish by Father Tad Pacholczyk who works at the National Catholic Bioethics Center. A professor at MSU is quoted as saying this, "There is some evidence, in some reports, that adult stem cells could be used."

Some evidence, in some reports? Go to the clinical trials web site of the NIH and type "stem cell" in the search engine. More than 500 studies indicate to me there is more than "some evidence, in some reports."
