Yuval Levin raises some interesting points regarding the fire in the fertility clinic argument and those who make it.

Mandy Oaklander has an article at New America Media about how some couples from India will travel to a fertility clinic in the United States to insure they get a child of a certain sex. The clinic uses some of its advertising budget to advertise to ethnic media and offers pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) as a tool to eliminate embryos of the wrong sex. According to the medical director of the gender selection program, 90% of his Indian clients request boys.

The court case on Missouri law regulating abortion clinic continues. The LA Times also covered this story.

Researchers at UCSF have supposedly improved on Shinya Yamanaka's technique of turning adult mouse cells into pluripotent stem cells.
