PRESIDENT BUSH TO APPOINT PRO-LIFER TO CO-CHAIR AIDS ADVISORY COUNCIL

WASHINGTON, January 23, 2002 (LSN.ca) – President George W. Bush is set to appoint former Republican Rep. Tom Coburn to co-chair the Presidential Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS. Coburn has a strong pro-life record but is being attacked by homosexual activists over the appointment due to his insistence on informing the public that the use of condoms does not guarantee safe sex.

The European Court has also decided to “communicate the application to the United Kingdom Government as matter of urgency.” The decision has thrilled euthanasia activists who suggested the case could go to court within months. Last November, the UK House of Lords rejected an appeal by Pretty, a 47-year-old British woman suffering from motor neurone disease, who asked the courts […]

ADULT STEM CELL DISCOVERED WHICH BESTS ALL CLAIMS OF EMBRYONIC STEM CELLS

ROCHESTER, MN, January 23, 2002 (LSN.ca) – Researchers at the University of Minnesota have discovered a stem cell in human adult bone marrow which can turn into every single tissue in the body, a claim until now only hypothesized about for embryonic stem cells.

Catherine Verfaillie at the University of Minnesota, made the discovery and called the cells multipotent adult progenitor cells, or MAPCs. While other researchers […]

OFFICIAL ESTIMATE OF MARCH FOR LIFE ATTENDANCE: 100,000

WASHINGTON, January 23, 2002 (LSN.ca) – Today LifeSite spoke with Nellie Gray, president of the March for Life Fund, who stated that the official estimate of the attendance at yesterday’s March for Life was 100,000.
