Orin Hatch against an amendment to codify a rule the Bush Administration put in place adding the “unborn child” as a patient under SCHIP. She claimed that because SCHIP already offered […]

I found these short clips from the Theology of the Body for Teens series: TOB segement for guys: TOB segement for girls: The world today, which sees authentic masculinity and femininity as antiquated, sexist ideals, may look at these videos and think: Why the separate advice for guys and girls?

The headline: FDA OKs First Human Trials of Embryonic Stem Cells. Note, this treatment will not consist in the direct infusion of human embryonic stem cells, but of neurons derived from ESCs: Starting this summer, the biotech firm Geron will treat a small group of spinal-cord injury patients using neurons derived from stem cells, marking […]

It’s been well over an hour and pro-life marchers are still making their way up Constitution Ave. in Washington D.C. – a great sign that the number of people witnessing for life is still huge.

Reader (and now fellow blogger) Brian Gillin recently had an op-ed published in the Washington Times in which he thanks Pres. Bush for his help in advancing stem cell science – that’s right, advancing it: Thank you, President Bush, for not allowing science to be divorced from ethics. In 2001, you struck a balance on […]
