The Raving Theist examines a pro-choice blogger's horror that the child born alive at a Florida abortion clinic was stuffed inside a plastic bag to die.
Horrified, again, that the baby was suffocated in a medical waste bag rather than chopped up in the womb two minutes before being stuffed into a medical waste bag.

Rapin Osathanondh, the abortionist whose actions led to the death of Laura Smith, could be in court in September to face charges for manslaughter.
Osathanondh allegedly sedated Smith without monitoring her vital signs or having another appropriately trained medical staffer present.

A civil case filed against the doctor last March by the victim's mother is proceeding in the same court.

Another day and another iPS cell advancement.
Borrowing a biological cut-and-paste trick from bacteria, scientists have created the first personalized stem cells for patients that are free of the cancer-causing viruses and genes needed to make them, according to a study published today in the journal Cell.

The stem cells, derived from skin samples provided by five patients with Parkinson's disease, were first transformed back to the undecided state of cells in an early embryo. Then they were used to make the dopamine-manufacturing neurons that are lost to disease.

An archbishop in Brazil is claiming that the abortion performed on a 9-year-old girl who was pregnant with twins means the girl's mother and the physicians who performed the abortion are ex-communicated.

A 77-year-old man in Great Britain has been sentenced to 12 weeks in jail for sending pictures of aborted children to a bed company. He had previously been jailed for sending a video showing abortion to a hospital administrator.
