Life Links 7/14/10

U.S. District Judge Laurie Smith Camp will issue a ruling today on Nebraska's abortion screening law. Another story about the case has this quote from Jill June, President of Planned Parenthood of the Heartland:
There was no evidence whatsoever that there's any inadequacy in the existing informed consent law. As a matter of fact, I think it's widely understood that Nebraska has a very sound informed consent law in place protecting the citizens," June said.
That's interesting considering that abortion proponents are typically opposed to informed consent laws like Nebraska's. For example, here's NARAL's web page on Nebraska's "biased counseling and mandatory delay" law.

A group of Canadian prolifers recently displayed pictures of aborted children on the streets of Guelph and received some news coverage.
Connell, who started Show the Truth’s Canadian movement 11 years ago, said she understands why some people find the images offensive, but she thinks they’re necessary to get across the reality of the act.

“There are no pretty pictures of abortion,” she said. “They’re realistic. They show little, decapitated mutilated babies because that’s what it is.”

Researchers at Oxford with take skin cells from Parkinson's patients and create induced pluripotent cells from them in the hopes of turning them into nerve cells to learn more about how Parkinson's effects these nerve cells.

Another group of British researchers will use adult stem cells and cartilage cells to try to treat patients with arthritic knees.
