The legalization of abortion in the U.S. by the Roe v. Wade decision has cost over 56 million preborn babies their young lives since that fateful day […]…

Scientist Claims New Reprogramming Technique Works in Human Cells, May Lead to Cloning

After the ground-breaking news last week that Japanese scientists were able reprogram adult cells to embryonic-like cells in mice by simply bathing them in weak acid, the next step was to try this with human cells.

Adult Stem Cells Imitate Human Brain, Are Hope for Neurological Disorders
