On Stem Cell Research and Media Portrayals of Christians as "Anti-Science"

If you haven't read this article in Opinion Journal today, you should. Since Roe v. Wade scientific progress has slowly undermined many of the underpinnings for the abortion right as, for example, unborn children are shown to feel pain and viability dates become earlier and earlier.
