What did I say about UCSB?

Forget what I said.

UC to Play Major Role in Cell Institute
While no embryonic human stem cells are currently used in research at UCSB, there is "talk about organizing a stem cell program," said Dennis Clegg, chair of the Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology Department. "We are particularly interested in the biochemistry and molecular biology of the aging process."
They would like to recruit some new talent and get some of the benefit of the recent passing of Proposition 71, which will provide state money for human embryonic stem-cell research.

Blind Ideology

RU-486 is being linked with women's deaths and a load of adverse reactions. Some are calling for it to be taken off of the market, or at least that the FDA should warn women of its adverse effects, which includes death (Warning: May cause death would be an interesting label). Elizabeth Cavendish, interim president for NARAL Pro-Choice America, responds:
I think that the characterization of it being deadly and dangerous is really anti-choice propaganda.
Don't worry, women of the world, NARAL is looking out for what's best for you! Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain. Give me the wisdom of the ages over the wisdom of the world!
