Love it. Another ‘flash mob’ with bright yellow balloons, this time outside an abortion mill. The facility decided to close for the day.
Heads up, Californians.
Never mind that embryonic stem cell research has helped no one and harmed many – or that adult stem cell research has provided great benefits without the ethical downsides. California has come up with a sneaky way of skimming more money from the citizenry to pay for embryonic stem cell research, according to EraseTheNeed’s Blog. Barb says “This new bill (AB 190) is due to be heard tomorrow, April 5.”
Pro-lifers, there will be a goodly gathering at the Rose Bowl on March 27, and you’re invited.
Even if you don’t think you can make it to the event, please go check out the website. It’s yet another of those projects run primarily by young people, and they are doing an excellent job.
Amongst other things, they are compiling pro-life videos at the site, and ask that people send them their favorites. Have at!
The Mississippi Baptist Convention has a Memorial to the Missing, using 50 million pennies inside a glass structure to mark the number of abortions in this country since Roe v Wade.
Giacomo at Joust the Facts, a doctor in his day job, has some info on how scientists made a new windpipe for a woman, using stem cells from her own bone marrow.

Reasoned Audacity has a round-up of some of the bloggers and others who are fighting FOCA by mentioning the Fight FOCA petition (which now has over 295,000 signatures).
The Paragraph Farmer notes opposition to FOCA from people otherwise solidly in the Obama camp. To put it another way, you don’t have to be pro-life to see what a bad idea this bill would be.
A woman who owns abortion centers that target Hispanic women in California has been arrested. She has entered a plea of no contest to charges of pretending to be a physician, and doing abortions without a medical license.
The next Monthly Call for Life is this Friday.
As always, feel free to expand the round-up by leaving a comment.
