Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to all who visit this blog!
One of the great reasons to give thanks this year is the breakthrough that was just announced about stem-cell research. In a remarkable advance, scientists have found a way to take ordinary human skin cells and send them back to a state where they act like embryonic stem cells. That is, they have the ability to develop into different kinds of tissue cells that could be cultivated to replace failing organs.

And it can all be done without destroying human embryos. This is a great victory for the pro-life movement. These scientists have proved what pro-lifers have been saying all along, that we can get better benefits from stem cell research without destroying embryos. This is truly a win-win situation for all sides. This article has more details.

Blessed Thanksgiving to you, too, Sister Lorraine. By the way, will you be coming to NJ for the FSP Christmas concerts?

Hi Lisa,

I won't be coming for the concerts this year; I have a lot of things to do here. But it would have been nice to see you again. Will you be at Princeton?
