Life Links 2/27/07

The New York Times has a profile article on Frances Kissling. Kissling will be stepping down from her position at Catholics for a Free Choice tomorrow.

Another example of pro-choice intolerance.

Illinois appears to be the next state headed down the road of funding embryonic stem cell research and human cloning for research. Of course, you wouldn't know that S.B. 4 allows state money to be used for somatic cell nuclear transfer from reading this article in the News-Gazette. The legislation also has the typical deceptive definition of cloning.
For purposes of this Section, "clone or attempt to clone a human being" means to transfer to a uterus or attempt to transfer to a uterus anything other than the product of fertilization of an egg of a human female by a sperm of a human male for the purpose of initiating a pregnancy that could result in the creation of a human fetus or the birth of a human being.
Is it me or does this leave the door open for implanting a cloned human embryo as long as the pregnancy couldn't result in a human fetus because the child would be aborted before that stage of development?
