Life Links 12/3/07

The BBC will broadcast a report tonight about women of Indian who live in Britain traveling to India to abort their unborn daughters.

Abortion provider George Kabacy has plead guilty to possession of child pornography. He had more than 8,000 images on his computer. He pled guilty so prosecutors wouldn't charge him with advertising the images he had.

Ellen Goodman joins Jonathan Moreno in claiming that Bush's stem cell funding policy somehow slowed research into creating pluripotent cells without killing human embryos.

Goodman also claims Bush (the first president to provide federal funds for research on human embryonic stem cells) slowed research "by starving funding and scaring off researchers." Her editorial also has this bizarre sentence that makes one wonder if she has any clue what she's talking about:
But the embryo could do what they were still unable to do: Cause ordinary body cells to act like stem cells.

The New York Times profiles Booth Gardner, the man behind a movement to legalize assisted suicide in Washington state and also discusses the viewpoints of those opposed to assisted suicide.
