Life Links 5/9/07

The New York Times has a story on how parents of children with Down Syndrome are organizing events for ob/gyns to meet their children in an effort to put "positive perspectives into a decision often dominated by daunting medical statistics and doctors who feel obligated to describe the difficulties of life with a disabled child."
Dr. Brian Skotko, a medical resident who has studied how mothers were told of prenatal diagnoses, found a high level of dissatisfaction. He said that most doctors have little or no training on how to relay a prenatal diagnosis of Down syndrome.

Pope Benedict has something to say to Catholic politicians who support abortion.

Quack psychiatrist William Rader is claiming he can cure AIDS with fetal stem cells. You just have to fly to the Dominican Republic and pay $25,000 to be injected with what are supposedly fetal stem cells (you have no way of knowing) which Rader claims "know exactly where to go and what to do, all on their own." And if you're looking for any peer-reviewed evidence, you're barking up the wrong tree.
