Loudly Anti-Abortion Ben Carson Used Fetal Tissue in Medical Research

Dr. Ben Carson, who not long ago wrote an op-ed for CNN denouncing the way Planned Parenthood is “butchering” babies and told Fox’s Megyn Kelly that fetal tissue isn’t even needed in medical research, used fetal tissue in his own research.

Once upon a few months ago, in a horrible dark land called Wisconsin, a woman who was 14-weeks pregnant confessed to her doctor that in the previous year, she'd battled— and recently kicked— an addition to pills.

Heads Up, Dudes: You Have Nipples Because Every Single One of You Used to Be Female

Okay, fine, some people prefer to call this early in-utero period as one without sex, but if you want to be technical about it, the early stages embryonic development are courtesy of the X chromosome. Granted, if an embryo has a Y chromosome, it's there from the moment of conception — but Mr. Y doesn't lift a finger… »1/10/13 12:05pm1/10/13 12:05pm

Oklahoma's Personhood Amendment Ruled 'Clearly Unconstitutional' By Exasperated-Sounding Supreme Court

New Tennessee Law That Criminalizes Harming Embryos Couldn't Possibly Be a Terrible Idea

Earlier this week, the Tennessee state Senate offered its near-unanimous approval to a measure that would make it a crime to harm a fetus at any point in a woman's pregnancy, including before 6 weeks' pregnancy when a fetus is actually technically called an "embryo."
