By Dave Andrusko Still another reminder how important it is to have a pro-life President. Pro-abortion groups are determined to “redeem” abortions by using tissue from the bodies of these babies in biomedical research. The Trump administration has worked assiduously to find and fund ethical alternatives. On Monday the National Institutes of Health (NIH) released …Continue reading "Trump’s NIH to spent $20 million “to develop or further refine ethical alternatives to fetal tissue research”"
By Wesley J. Smith The California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM) was a multi-billion dollar money suck agreed to by California voters in 2004 as a way to “resist Bush” about embryonic stem-cell research. The mendacious campaign promised Cures! Cures! Cures! with embryonic stem cells and therapeutic human cloning — even promising that disabled children …Continue reading "California Stem-Cell Agency Wants More Voter Money"
By Right to Life of Michigan The CIRM was to be the great hope for cures for millions of Americans suffering from incurable diseases. The California Institute for Regenerative Medicine was created by 59 percent of California voters in 2004 and given $3 billion in tax dollars to pursue cures by killing human embryos and …Continue reading "Stem cell hucksters back for more cash"
By Dave Andrusko In a first-of-its-kind study published in Circulation Research, an American Heart Association journal, researchers from Universidad de los Andes in Chile found that stem cells derived from the umbilical cords of newborn babies may lead to repairs in damaged hearts and improvements in heart muscle. “We are encouraged by our findings because …Continue reading "Stem cells derived from the umbilical cords of newborn babies show promise in repairing damaged hearts"

By Kathy Ostrowski, Legislative Director, Kansans for Life Once in a blue moon, a lawmaker publicly admits he regrets how he voted. Those of us present at Tuesday’s hearing in the Kansas House Health & Human Services committee witnessed such a concession. The focus of the hearing was the status report on the Midwest Stem …Continue reading "Kansas stem cell center success inspires lawmaker change of heart"
Opens possibility of creating unlimited numbers of manufactured human embryos for experimentation By Dave Andrusko Using two types of stem cells (the body’s ‘master cells’) and a 3D scaffold on which they can grow, scientists at the University of Cambridge “have managed to create a structure resembling a mouse embryo in culture,” according to the …Continue reading "Research team combines two types of stem cells to create mouse embryo in culture"
By Dave Andrusko Paging through the many posts I receive daily about stem cells, I ran across a story that was published by the Associated Press earlier this week under the headline, “Cells dripped into the brain help man fight a deadly cancer.” I read these stories because they confirm what we have written dozens …Continue reading "Cells from cancer victim’s own body help man fight deadly brain cancer"
Scientists think there’s an evolutionary mechanism whereby the baby assists in protecting the mother’s heart during and after pregnancy. Editor’s note. This comes from our friends at SPUC–the Society for the Protection of Unborn Children. This popular meme suggests that an unborn baby can send its own stem cells to its mother to repair damaged …Continue reading "Can an unborn baby really send stem cells to repair its mother’s organs?"
By Dave Andrusko I thought there was nothing pro-abortionists could write that could really surprise me. Wrong. National Public Radio–NPR–was on the receiving end of a thorough chastisement yesterday from Jodi Jacobson, editor in chief of the pro-abortion site Rhrealitycheck.org. I’m sure a confused and contrite NPR, which is customarily 100% in the pro-abortion camp, …Continue reading "To pro-abortionists, the unpardonable sin: conceding fetal tissue harvesting is “antiquated” and not cutting edge research"
By Dave Andrusko The beauty of the web is that one thing leads to another to another with often times fascinating results. Such is what happened yesterday, as I was trolling for information to reply to a friend. I ran across a 2001 piece written by the late Robin Toner, under the headline, “The abortion …Continue reading "A “More Fetally Aware Society”"
