EXPERIMENTATION WITH HUMAN EMBRYOS URGED BY “ETHICS” ADVISERS

WASHINGTON, Sept 15 (LifeSiteNews.com) – US President Clinton’s National Bioethics Advisory Commission released a report Monday urging that the federal law prohibiting public funding for research on human embryos be scrapped. The report suggested that human embryos created for fertility treatments but left unused could be donated to publicly-funded research.

OTTAWA, Sept 14 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The Canadian branch of the United Nations Children’s Fund and Elections Canada have released the ten rights to be voted on by Canadian youth under 18 in a mock national election to be held November 19.

Subsumed under the right of “Education”, the first right listed of ten, it specifies that “the discipline used in our schools must not go against […]
