  Viable Option
Finally there is a viable option to wasting billions of dollars on dead end research that only demands more dead children and patients waiting for a cure that never comes. Ethical science makes progress despite human fallibility. The rest of this excellent article is at the link

Option to stem cells found Pitt experts say placental cells offer palatable alternativeFriday, August 05, 2005 By Byron Spice, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

University of Pittsburgh researchers have discovered that one type of cell in the human placenta has characteristics that are strikingly similar to embryonic stem cells in their ability to regenerate a wide variety of tissues.The cells, called amniotic epithelial cells, potentially could be used to produce new liver cells to treat liver failure, or new pancreatic islet cells to cure diabetes or new neurons to treat Parkinson's disease.Unlike embryonic stem cells, which are obtained only by destroying human embryos, these cells can be extracted from the same placentas that now are routinely discarded after birth. They thus could be a non-controversial alternative to embryonic stem cells."We think it would be easier to get these to the clinic than [embryonic stem] cells," said Stephen Strom, an associate professor of pathology at the Pitt medical school.Not only do amniotic epithelial cells lack the controversy of embryonic stem cells, but they also do not generate the tumors associated with embryonic stem cells, he said. So it may be possible in some cases to simply transplant the amniotic cells to a patient, rather than to first grow the desired specialized cells in the laboratory.

  Who Ya Gonna Call?
Most Americans just call a lawyer not ghostbusters. May the outraged women of America break the bank of abortion clinics that have broken so many hearts. A friend told me that he did the math (he is an accountant) and found that there is a better than ninety per cent chance that the Abortion Breast Cancer link is for real. The more we learn the more tragic this becomes for those who were not informed of the increased risk for breast cancer.
I have two items to share with you.First, cancer fundraising profiteers and the abortion industry are conning the public by denying that women who have abortions are left with a greater risk of breast cancer. In his article below, Andrew Schlafly, Esq., general counsel to the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, argues that these industries are concealing considerable evidence of an abortion-breast cancer link from women "in an attempt to prevent massive lawsuits from being filed."Women in Pennsylvania, Oregon and Australia have brought successful lawsuits against abortion doctors for neglecting to reveal the increased risks of breast cancer and emotional harm. The plaintiff in the Oregon lawsuit, moreover, received an "offer of judgment" from her abortion provider. That means that the plaintiff didn't have to go to trial to establish that the abortion provider was liable and to win her lawsuit. The abortion provider agreed to accept liability. An "offer of judgment" is an even better "win" for the plaintiff than a settlement.Women who have abortions are also at greater risk for future premature births. (Premature birth is associated with cerebral palsy.)"The malpractice crisis is primarily due to the rise in breast cancer," argues Schlafly, "and high abortion rates are imposing this cost on all medical care." Schlafly adds that we haven't seen the worst of it yet. Science predicts a "tsunami of breast cancer cases from the large number of abortions in the 1980s and 1990s."In the words of Canadian researcher Brent Rooney, non-abortion providing doctors have become "the fall guys" for the misconduct of their medical organizations and the abortion and the cancer fundraising industries.Failing to speak out about a deadly risk isn't just an omission. It's a crime that might be compared to the crimes of Nazi doctors. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists adamantly denies an abortion-cancer link. Although many of these doctors perform abortions, the vast majority does not. The group's non-abortion performing doctors pay for the consequences of abortion every month when their medical malpractice premiums come due.Cancer fundraising businesses are poised to reap a windfall. Some day, it will dawn on women that the more money they give to those profiteering in cancer, the more breast cancer cases there are.Second, Eve Sanchez Silver announced that she is available for interviews and speaking engagements following her successful speaking tour "Down Under." Last week, she returned from her speaking engagements in Australia and New Zealand.You may read Schlafly's article and Silver's press release below. Please circulate this e-newsletter far and wide to your subscribers (if you have a subscription list) and to family and friends.
