life begins at conception -- if you're a panda

By Diogenes (articles ) | Aug 08, 2005

Got this gem in the morning's e-mail:

A 13-year-old giant panda gave birth to a cub at San Diego Zoo, but a second baby died in the womb, officials said Wednesday."
--Associated Press, 3 August 2005

A cancer-ravaged woman robbed of consciousness by a stroke has given birth after being kept on life support for three months to give her fetus extra time to develop."
--Associated Press, 3 August 2005

    Thanks for the notice, Diogenes. This is remarkable. I wonder whether Planned Parenthood and Frances "free to kill kids" Kissling & co. at Catholics for Free Choice have seen these AP reports? I mean, they might want to issue contraceptives to the pandas, or at least counsel the pandas about the "freedom" to kill their "babies"...
