Sperm cells created from female embryo


So what I'm getting from this article is that it may be possible in the future to create sperm from female bone marrow cells, creating the possibility for lesbian couples to have biological offspring. That's some pretty interesting news from the science world. The strides they have been making in the reproductive health field are very impressive.

In other reproduction news: I don't know if I posted about the male contraceptive article but I'll go ahead and add that one later just in case.

This helps me a lot when I'm depressed. :)

People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered; Forgive them anyway. If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives; Be kind anyway. If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies; Succeed anyway. If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you; Be honest and frank anyway. What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight; Build anyway. If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous; Be happy anyway. The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow; Do good anyway. Give the world the best you have and it may just never be enough; Give the world the best you have anyway. You see, in the final analysis, it’s all between you and God; It was never between you and them anyway.

Legalize Love


It's unclear whether this campaign is actually endorsed by President Obama, but it was created to raise awareness and promote his re-election. President Obama recently made history as the first President to come out in support of same-sex marriage, stating "I've just concluded that, for me personally, it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same sex couples should be able to get married," in an interview with ABC News. President Obama is a prime example of LGBT progression. During his election campaign, he admitted that he supported civil unions, but was unsure of whether he could give his support to same-sex marriage because of his religious beliefs. He later said that his position on same-sex marriage was "evolving", and now here we are. Lets hope that the rest of our great nation can evolve on this issue and realize that love is love is love, and that same-sex couples deserve the same rights as everyone else.
