Clark Forsythe on Ayotte vs. Planned Parenthood in the National Review Online.

You can listen in on-line to the oral arguments at the C-SPAN website at 12:15 p.m.

Judge Ray Randolph's lecture to the Federalist Society discussing the draft of an opinion on abortion by Judge Henry Friendly that was never filed because the New York legislature voted to legalize abortion before the case was decided.

Scientists in London will soon be using nasal stem cells in an attempt to "mend the severed nerves of young people who have suffered motorbike accidents."

Why isn't this kind of research more popular?

"This is not the most popular way of attempting to heal spinal injuries. That would be to produce patented chemicals, which drug companies can make and sell.
