A pediatrician, an endocrinologist, and a psychiatrist explain their concerns about the medical treatments being given to children with gender dysphoria.
Scientists have discovered in a recent study that it isn’t the mother’s body directing embryonic activity; the embryo determines that itself.
Our new motion graphic video on the S.L.E.D. test explains why no human being—regardless of size, race, sex, etc.—should be excluded from the community of human persons. COMMENTS Read more posts
Wesley J. Smith reports that Quebec has created a new right – the right to be euthanized with the help of a medical professional. Positive rights such as this law create obligations on others. In this case, every institution that provides medical and nursing care in the province is required to find a medical person to administer aid in dying.
Christianity Today reports: [Scientists] have learned how to reprogram adult cells so that they can do many things an embryonic cell can do. No human embryos are destroyed in the process. Along the way, embryonic stem cells—just a decade ago hailed as the future of medicine—have largely been bypassed. Some researchers still use them, but for now, the future belongs to adult stem cells and iPS cells, which are adult cells genetically reprogrammed to express specific genes.
Here's a recording of the counseling a woman received who went in for a late-term abortion - what she was told about the procedure and what to expect. The callousness with which they discuss killing the baby is disturbing. In fact, they repeatedly refer to the baby as "the pregnancy."

Scott, who is now with Life Training Institute but was with STR for several years, made this video greeting that was played at the Biola Apologetics anniversary conference. #STR20 We really appreciated his comments and reflection. In truth, what he says is due in large part to his time at STR. COMMENTS
Would You Want to Live that Way? That’s the challenge I've heard a number of times from advocates of starving Terri Schiavo to death. It usually comes in the conversation when what they’ve offered so far in the way of justification has been refuted. It’s a rejoinder of last resort, but since it’s offered purportedly as an argument, let me take it seriously. Would you want to live that way? No. But what follows from that?
Small but hopeful results in treatment for Parkinson's using adult stem cells.
