Life Links 5/29/08

Planned Parenthood faces a $50 million lawsuit from a woman who claims her daughter was injured at their Metropolitan, Washington D.C. location. Alleged injuries include severe abdominal bleeding, severe vaginal injury, severe injury to the cervix, significant uterine perforation, a small bowel tear, pieces of the unborn child were found in the girl’s abdomen and she is now infertile. Students for Life of America has PDFs of the lawsuit and Planned Parenthood’s response.

Some individuals in the student government of York University in Canada want to ban prolife student groups from their university. Another strike for pro-choice intolerance. I like this quote:
Gilary Massa, vice-president external of the York Federation of Students, said student clubs will be free to discuss abortion in student space, as long as they do it "within a pro-choice realm," and that all clubs will be investigated to ensure compliance.
You have the freedom of speech as long as you discuss abortion “within a pro-choice realm.” Classic. More silly quotes from Massa here.

Paul T. Stallsworth on the United Methodist Church and abortion.

Does being seen with our nation’s most infamous late-term abortionist help Kathleen Sebelius’ chances of getting the nod for Vice-President? Probably not.

James Thomson says he doesn’t believe the value of embryonic stem cells is in transplantation.
I really believe personally that the value of these cells is not in transplantation. It's hard to predict the future, but my guess is 20 years from now if you look backwards, 90% of the value of these cells will be in things that don't make the front pages. It will be things like drug screening, which is kind of boring, but it does get drugs to market that are safer and faster.
So much for Cures! Cures! Cures!
