Were there to be no support in the whole history of ethical and moral thought, were there no acknowledged confirmation from medical science, were the history of legal opinion to the contrary, we would still have to conclude on the basis of God's Holy Word that the unborn child is a person in the sight of God. He is protected by the sanctity of life graciously given to each individual by the Creator, Who alone places His image upon man and grants them any right to life which they have.

UC-Irvine opens new stem-cell research institute amid pro-life protests
"Reckless destruction of life"
A new human embryonic stem cell research facility funded by the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM) has opened on the campus of the University of California at Irvine, Life Legal Defense Foundation reports.
CIRM provided $27. 2 million for the facility, which "will serve as a hub for embryonic stem cell research and education in the region and house the Sue and Bill Gross Stem Cell Research Center," LLDF reported. The university said in a 2008 news release that the institute would be housed in a three-story, 61,500 square foot building. It is named after a Laguna Beach couple that gave UCI $10 million to establish the stem cell research facility.
