In one study supported by NINDS, scientists are looking at the hereditary basis of neural tube defects. The goal of this research is to find the genetic factors that make some children more susceptible to neural tube defects than others. Lessons learned from this research will fill in gaps of knowledge about the causes of neural tube defects and may lead to ways to prevent these disorders. These researchers are also studying gene expression during the process of neural tube closure, which will provide information on the human nervous system during development.
Employers obviously do not have, nor do they seek to have, the option to deny anyone medical services. But if those services fly in the face of employers’ religious convictions, they have historically not been required to pay for them, and should not be today simply because Planned Parenthood and its allies, along with the Obama administration, say they should. Planned Parenthood’s incendiary rhetoric in its white paper is illustrative of the deceptive, thug-like tactics it increasingly uses to force its malevolent agenda on Americans who want no part of it.
