Life Links 9/3/09

Is it me or is this interview with Jack Kevorkian by the local Detroit FOX affiliate way too light-hearted and rather tasteless considering the reporter is talking to a man who was jailed for killing a man and admits to helping more than 100 people commit suicide?

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette has a story of a couple who choose life for their child who was diagnosed at 20 weeks with anencephaly.
"You never expect your baby to die. But all these wonderful things keep happening because of Lane," said Mrs. Leighty, a graphic designer. Mr. Leighty is a security guard at Rivers Casino.

"I love that his brief life made such a difference," Mrs. Leighty said.

Time reports on how researchers have created insulin-producing cells from induced pluripotent stem cells from the skin cells of diabetes patients.
