Royce Thomas Chancellor ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: the Senate, where it is expected to come up after Thanksgiving. The Dannemeyer amendment is designed to eliminate public funding for abortion's most grisly by-product. Experimentation on living unborn children -- and on babies who survive abortions --has mushroomed since the Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade decision. Siljander described one such "experiment" on a living aborted baby. "They took the fetus and cut his belly open," Siljander said of an experiment funded in part by NIH. "They said they wanted its liver. They carried the baby out of the incubator and it was still alive. It was a boy. It had a complet e body, with hands, feet, mouth and ears. "The fetus was not injected with an anesthetic when doctors sliced open his stomach. The doctors maintained that this was of little concern because, as the doctor put it, 'an aborted baby is just garbage.'" Dannemeyer's fellow Californian, Henry Waxman (D-CA), was unmoved. "Do not let your emotions sway you," he implored his colleagues. "We do not need this amend- ment." Waxman defended existing regulations, which permit government money to be spent in support of non-therapeutic experiments on unborn children and on living aborted infants so long as the mother gives her uncoereed consent and the risk to the fetus is deemed "minimal." "I cannot believe," Siljander said, "that we are restricting experiments on animals and monkeys but we would not restrict ex- periments on human beings." Dannemeyer's amendment was adopted after acrimonious debate. Just a day later, another pro-life proposal was signed into law without any debate at all. The continuing resolution (H.J.

Among several items decided at the meeting - - members voted to substantially increase the Alumni Discretionary Fund over the next several years (This fund is supported by the alumni and administered by the seminary faculty to assist needy seminarians meet their expenses), voted to have the next alumni meeting in Little Rock and voted unanimously to have Father Malone serve as the new association president. In the late afternoon, the Arkansas delegation joined with all in attendance in celebrating an anniversary of the Dedication Mass. H-is Excellency Thomas Tschoepe, Bishop of Dallas, was the principal celebrant. Monsignor Michael Sheehan, former rector of HTS, gave the homily.
