Life Links 7/14/09

Good for Democrats for Life. They finally kicked Tim Ryan (D-OH) off of their advisory board. Ryan claims it has to do with his promotion of contraception but I'm guessing it has a little more to do with his voting record over the past couple of years including his votes in favor of expanded federal funding of embryonic stem cell research, his vote against an amendment to protect the Mexico City policy, his vote to protect Planned Parenthood's funding. His recent vote on the House Appropriations Committee against an amendment to prohibit the public funding of abortion in the District of Columbia could have been the straw that broke the camel's back.

His voting record since 2007 is basically the same as the most adamant of pro-choicers. He was even honored by Planned Parenthood.

It appears the individuals, including Norma McCorvey, who interrupted the Senate hearings on Judge Sotomayor were with Randall Terry.

Justin Barnard writes about new NIH head Francis Collins' positions on life issues. I was unaware of Collins' support of human cloning for research and his odd justification for it before reading this.

Governor Jan Brewer of Arizona signed a variety of abortion restrictions into law on Monday.
