Life Links 1/9/07

Jeremy Lott in the American Spectator with The Planned Parenthood Primary.
Most political observers learn to take what goes on in presidential primaries in stride, but one thing I still find immensely depressing. Every four years, like gruesome clockwork, Democratic hopefuls of course try to nail down liberal votes by promising to keep abortions safe, legal, and rarely challenged.

Shinya Yamanaka is predicting it will take around ten years for induced pluripotent stem cells to be used to treat human patients with some conditions. I doubt it.

New research into cancer stem cells shows that they are "abnormally trapped at an early stage of development."
The researchers found that the TICs (Tumor-initiating cells or cancer stem cells) isolated from an adult patient are more similar to early embryonic stem cells than to later embryonic or adult-derived stem cells.
Hmmm.....It will be either a very brave or very ignorant individual who allows themselves to be one of the first test subjects injected with cells created from embryonic stem cells.

I don't think the people at American Right to Life are big Romney fans. It appears they've created a video posted on YouTube regarding Romney's change of positions on the abortion issue. Both Huckabee and Romney are courting prolife voters in Michigan with ads discussing their beliefs.
