Life Links 2/6/07

Julie Makimaa and her mother Lee Ezell were featured in a story on ABC News. Julie was conceived in rape.

ProlifeBlogs has the video of Rudy Giuliani sharing his thoughts on abortion on Hannity and Colmes. The "personally opposed" strategy never seems to get old. Could some reporter or host please ask "Why do you hate abortion?"

Also of note, Giuliani didn't answer what he thought about Roe besides saying "it's precedent" unless you count the affirmation of "right to choose" as an affirmation of Roe. Giuliani also said he is in favor of a ban on partial-birth abortion as long as there is a life of mother exception and is in favor parental notification as long as there is judicial bypass. Hannity should possibly have also asked what Giuliani's stand on tax-funded abortions would be.

Scientists in Spain have supposedly for the first time treated a patient's heart using stem cells culled from the patient's fat tissue.

There's a debate in Kansas over how to define certain terms used in when discussing stem cell research. I'm guessing those opposed to the definitions in H.B. 2098 would prefer it if human cloning were defined as something like "implanting the product of nuclear transfer (aka human clone) into a uterus."
