The Washington Post has an article on New York's move to allow women to sell their eggs to researchers for human cloning research experiments.
The Empire State Stem Cell Board, which decides how to spend $600 million in state funding for stem cell studies, will allow researchers to compensate women up to $10,000 for the time, discomfort and expenses associated with donating eggs for experiments.

AUL's blog describes some the issues involved in the challenge to Virginia's ban on partial-birth abortion with some hints at what it could possibly mean for future prolife legislative efforts.

A man in California has been charged with assault with a deadly weapon after allegedly attempting to run over a prolife protestor with his SUV.
Carrillo said Canfield is a regular demonstrator at Planned Parenthood and also at the Women's Health Center on Fir Street. He has a large sign with a graphic photo of an aborted fetus.

The investigation revealed Haver had a child with him in the vehicle, and as they drove by the demonstration, the child asked what was on the sign.

Carrillo said it appears Haver became enraged over the picture of the aborted fetus, lost control of his emotions and tried to strike Canfield with his vehicle.

Thousands of Indian women recently took to the streets to protest sex selection abortions.

A 70-year-old man in Washington has admitted to making a potentially threatening phone call to the abortion clinic of Warren Hern.
After questioning from the Marshals Service and the Federal Bureau of Investigation on Wednesday night, the Washington man confessed to the call, according to Ken Deal, chief deputy marshal in Denver.

But Deal said the call was more of an "inappropriate communication" than a credible threat. The man has not been arrested or indicted, and that decision will be made by the U.S. Attorney's Office, Deal said.
