Life Links 12/19/06

The Detroit News has a story on the biological mothers of adopted children who gave birth during the 1960's. Many of them were sent away during their pregnancies and pressured or coerced into adoption since it wasn't the norm at the time for unwed middle-class mothers to keep their children.

In a lot of ways their stories remind me of the stories of women who had abortions and now regret them.

The body of a 14-week unborn child was found at sewage treatment facility in New York state.

The battle over human cloning in Missouri doesn't seem to over just yet. And don't miss the obvious bias of Kit Wagar in this story in the Kansas City Star.
The ball of cells becomes an embryo if it attaches to the wall of the uterus.
Unbelievable. Then why are they called "embryonic" stem cells if they didn't come from an embryo.

Researchers have used the stem cells in the brains of rats to try to study why the human brain ages.
