by Sam Pierce Death returns to Columbia. The home of Mizzou and Stephens College (an all female school) would seem to be a logical place for a Planned Parenthood slaughterhouse. All those college students, nurtured by a "progressive" education system,…

A federal judge’s ruling this week blocking the federal government from funding embryonic stem cell research has ignited the usual flames of outrage among the political and scientific left.
“Criminal,” said Robert Lanza chief scientific officer of Advanced Cell Technology, which has a financial stake in continued funding. “We are talking about people going blind, people who area dying from a terrifying array of diseases.”

Reading my University of Illinois news yesterday, I came upon an advocacy interview (the lead story, in fact) with Professor Leslie Reagan promoting abortion for minors without parental notification.  With the U of I in dire financial trouble, and under attack for admissions preferences, I sincerely question the wisdom of releasing an abortion promo as an official news piece from the University of Illinois.

The usual collection of anti-life* organizations didn’t take long to bare their fangs at state Sen. William Brady after he was confirmed as the Republican nominee for Illinois governor.

In particularly harsh words for activists who pride themselves on their compassion, Illinois Planned Parenthood Illinois Action, Chicago-NOW, Personal PAC and Citizen Action Illinois labeled Brady “anti-woman” and pledged their support to Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn.
“When Bill Brady was certified,” said Planned Parenthood’s Beth Kanter, “I literally shuddered at the notion of him in the governor’s office. … His record demonstrates that …

Rep. Dan Lipinski, D-IL

Rep. Jim Oberstar, D-MN

Illinois Democrat Dan Lipinski told The Weekly Standard that he will not vote for the  Senate healthcare bill unless the pro-abortion sections are removed. When asked if Lipinski was open to supporting the Senate healthcare bill if it lacked the Stupak language, the Congressman’s spokesman Nathaniel Zimmer replied: “No. Congressman Lipinski will not vote for a health care bill that provides federal funding for abortion.”
And Lipinski isn’t the only Democrat willing to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with Bart Stupak.
Minnesota Democrat Jim Oberstar made crystal clear that …
