In the Light of the Law: Excommunication for deliberate embryo destruction?
Canon lawyer Ed Peters defends latae sententiae excommunication for embryonic stem-cell research (discussed here yesterday) as flowing from the historical development and understanding of canon law.

Hat Tip: Mark Shea

Sen. Bill Frist revives stem cell bill

Urged anew by Nancy Reagan, Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist on Thursday revived a bill to expand funding for embryonic stem cell research after conservatives who had blocked it withdrew their objections.

"It's my intention now that we've gotten over this first hurdle that we will (vote on the bill) in the not too distant future," Frist said as he brought the three-bill package to the floor.

"We'll do this before we get out of here for the October break?" asked Democratic leader Harry Reid of Nevada.

"We will," replied Frist, R-Tenn.

Godless liberals, all of them. Especially that Reagan woman.

Who said anything about liberals? I completely admit that many supposed conservatives are wrong on this issue. Don't be so defensive. This is an equal opportunity screwup. (And don't throw Nancy Reagan in with us. She's never been a pro-lifer and frequently tried to talk Ron out of his firm pro-life stance. She was wrong then and she's wrong now.)
