Life Links 10/3/07

A study from the Fred Hutchison Cancer Research Center in Seattle has found cells from unborn children may protect their mothers from breast cancer.
"My hypothesis was that maybe fetal cells can get into a mother and recognise a pre-cancer breast cancer cell and kill it before it becomes an active cancer," Gadi said.

"We have other studies from our group where we believe stem cells are really what are coming over, establishing themselves in various tissues and reproducing themselves," he added, urging follow-up studies.

Fetal cells could remain in the mother for the duration of her life, offering protection against cancer, Gadi said.

The results of the study were published in the October issue of Cancer Research.
I wonder how the pro-choicers who label a fetus a "parasite" would respond to this.

The Planned Parenthood in Aurora is open. The Chicago Tribune has a story and a video.

Meanwhile, Planned Parenthood of West Michigan has closed up some of its facilities after losing $700,000 in government funding.

The New York Times has a review of Tony Kaye's Lake of Fire, a documentary film about abortion in the United States.

Marcy Bloom has a piece at the RHReality Check blog where she asserts, "The hateful and oppressive Hyde Amendment killed Rosie Jiménez. She died on October 3, 1977, at the age of 27. We remember her because she has become a symbol--a human face--of all women and girls everywhere who are denied their human right to safe, legal, funded, and accessible abortion care."

This is like me saying the federal government's refusal to pay for poor people to have guns is responsible for the deaths of poor people who are murdered. In Marcy's tirade against no federal tax dollars being used to pay for abortions, she never once considers that maybe the individual who botched Rosie's abortion was responsible for her death.
