Life Links 2/26/07

An article in the UK's Scotsman includes one woman sharing what she felt after having a late-term abortion.
Four months later - around the time her baby might have been born - she went to pieces.

Stricken with grief and guilt, she turned to drink. "I knew I needed help badly, I was so messed up," she adds.

"I'd been given the scan picture of the baby - by mistake, I suppose. But I kept it and used to put it beside me on my pillow when I went to bed. I'd have nightmares. I could hear this child calling my name."

According to an Indian newspaper, a young man in India who has paralyzed from the waist down is now walking after a stem cell transplant.
Nearly 100 ml of his bone marrow was removed, harvested and isolated before the stem cells were injected near the injured spot in his spinal cord.
