Global family tree ‘traced’ to Noah’s sons through Y chromosome

HEBRON, Ky. (BP) -- One question puzzled Answers in Genesis researcher and biologist Nathaniel T. Jeanson for decades: What was going on in pre-Columbus America before Europeans arrived?

FIRST-PERSON: Space exploration and God

VINCENT, Ala. (BP) -- After 45 years, astronauts landed in the drink again. It was the first ever Gulf of Mexico space capsule landing. The event garnered lots of news coverage.

Rebuttal follows Nature article questioning adult stem cells’ value

WASHINGTON (BP)--Experts are questioning two new studies that may be used to cast doubt on the usefulness of adult stem cells in treating disease, CNSNews.com reported March 15. The studies seem to contradict previous findings that adult stem cells offer both an effective and ethical alternative to stem cells taken from human embryos.

FIRST-PERSON: Stem cell researchers discover miracle cells

DEERFIELD, Ill. (BP)--Groundbreaking news the week of Jan. 21 that scientists at the University of Minnesota may have discovered a potential method to treat disease also means there may be a way to put an end to one of the most difficult public policy debates of this new century. Catherine Verfaillie and colleagues at the Stem Cell Institute have found "miracle" stem cells that may well be the most versatile of all stem cells.

Cell discovery could transform cloning, embryo research debates

WASHINGTON (BP)--The discovery of a stem cell in adults that reportedly has remarkable powers could prove a watershed in the contentious debates over cloning and human embryo research.

Bush administration reverses guidelines on embryo research

WASHINGTON (BP)--The Bush administration has made clear it will not permit federal funds for research requiring the destruction of human embryos, causing opponents of a previous policy to withdraw a lawsuit as a result.

SBC ethicists disappointed in Bush’s stem cell decision

      WASHINGTON (BP)--Southern Baptist ethics specialists expressed disappointment at President Bush's decision to provide federal funds for research on stem cells already harvested from human embryos that have been destroyed.
      In a nationally televised speech Aug. 9 from his Texas ranch, Bush announced he would allow funding for research on the more than 60 lines, or groups, of existing stem cells "where the life-and-death decision has already been made." The president said this would permit stem cell research "without crossing a fundamental moral line" of funding the destruction of human embryos.

Mohler: Bush decision has much for pro-life community to applaud

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (BP)--President Bush's decision to allow federal funding for limited embryonic stem cell research was delivered in a "statesman"-like fashion and contained much that the pro-life community can applaud, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary President R. Albert Mohler Jr. said on CNN's "Larry King Live" Aug. 9.

STATEMENT: ‘Deeply disappointed’ yet seeing some ‘good news’

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (BP)--I am deeply disappointed that the president has decided to federally fund embryonic stem cell research on the tissue obtained from already aborted babies. I fear that this first halting step in the direction of embryonic stem cell research will build pressure to cross the important moral barrier barring the killing of more embryos to obtain their stem cells. We must always remember that these existing stem cell lines are fundamentally different than parts of a human being, such as a kidney or a heart. These stem cells are the essential, foundational building blocks of an entire human being whose life was lost before his or her stem cells were harvested.

Oxford medical ethicist reacts to president’s stem cell announcement

JACKSON, Tenn. (BP)--In response to President Bush's announcement Aug. 9 to allow limited federal funding of embryonic stem cell research, medical ethicist E. David Cook of Oxford University said he is pleased but concerned about the U.S. leader's pronouncement.
