Life Links 1/4/07

Here's an interesting story about how 1,400 human embryos were rescued from a flooded New Orleans hospital after Hurricane Katrina.

Robert Novak has a column on newly-elected prolife Democrats and the upcoming vote on increased federal funding of embryonic stem cell research. But for some reason Novak calls Jon Tester (the newly elected U.S. Senator from Montana) a "pro-lifer" when it doesn't appear that Tester is what most people consider "prolife" from Tester's web site or the fact that he was endorsed by NARAL in 2006. Does anyone who says they want to reduce the number of abortions now get the label "prolife?"

Feminist health care centers vs. private practice abortionists?
According to one feminist health care provider named Carol Downer, "Women go into those (private practice) provider's offices and no matter how good the medical care is they come out feeling ashamed. Not true with feminist health centers. We REALLY believe in the rights of all women that come through our doors. We treat a woman with respect."

Does that mean that private practice abortionists don't treat women with respect? But from what I read from most abortion supporting organizations abortion provides women almost uniformly with relief?

Thanks to Serge for pointing me to the Reproductive Health Reality Check blog which I'm sure will provide many posts to comment on in the future.
