Stem-cell divisions transcend abortion fight

By Maggie Fox, Health and Science Correspondent
Thu Jul 20, 8:17 AM ET

President George W. Bush may have cited his moral stance in vetoing a bill that would have expanded embryonic stem-cell research on Wednesday but the issue transcends traditional divisions over abortion rights.

Strongly conservative Republicans who oppose abortion such as Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch (news, bio, voting record) have backed broader federal funding of embryonic stem-cell research for years, and more conservatives have come on board recently, including Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist of Tennessee.

The embryos at issue come from fertility clinics, where eggs and sperm are united in lab dishes. But many more are made than can ever be implanted in mothers' wombs, and the leftovers are discarded.

Denial by abortion accused

THE doctor accused of performing an illegal abortion and killing a premature baby told a NSW Medical Board inquiry she did not do abortions beyond 20 weeks' gestation because it was not covered by her insurance.

In a document tendered at her Supreme Court trial, Suman Sood denied acting improperly when treating a 20-year-old woman.

The woman has testified that Sood had agreed to perform an abortion when she was 23 weeks' pregnant, gave her a tablet vaginally and orally, and sent her home. She delivered the baby boy in a toilet 13 hours later.

Man pleads guilty to breaking into Iowa City abortion clinic

IOWA CITY, Iowa A Davenport man has pleaded guilty to breaking into an Iowa City abortion clinic and assaulting a worker.
William Owens-Holst is awaiting sentencing for third-degree burglary and simple assault.

According to a police report, Owens-Holst tried to get in the Emma Goldman Clinic on May 16th to prevent abortions.

The report says Owens-Holst grabbed a female employee by her neck, pushed her against a vehicle and threw her cell phone to the ground. Owens-Holst then smashed a second-floor window to get inside administrative offices before the clinic began seeing patients.

Police say they negotiated with Owens-Holst for about five minutes before he agreed to leave the building.

For the first time since anti-abortion activists began amassing in Jackson, the state's only abortion provider was open Wednesday for business while protesters rallied outside.

The Jackson Women's Health Organization clinic, located at 2903 N. State St., has opened its doors this week at 6:30 a.m. and closed by 9 a.m. to try to avoid the protesters, said Susan Hill, president of the Raleigh, North Carolina-based National Women's Health Organization, which owns the clinic.
