Manhunt still on for Suspect No. 2

Law enforcement officials still haven’t apprehended Suspect No. 2 in the Boston Marathon bombings, reported as Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. They have parts of Watertown, Mass., and other areas blocked off. His brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, was killed after a shoot-out with police. On Thursday night the brothers reportedly were involved in robbing a convenience store, then shot and killed an MIT police officer and wounded another police officer. It’s a tense day for a city that has suffered greatly.

Is in vitro fertilization next target for Legislature?

Will the recently passed Kansas bill declaring that life begins at fertilization lead to efforts next session to increase regulation on or restrict in vitro fertilization? “I won’t be surprised,” Sen. Laura Kelly, D-Topeka, told the Topeka Capital-Journal. She cited a hearing in February organized by Sen. Mary Pilcher-Cook, R-Shawnee, that featured only critics of in vitro fertilization, in which eggs are fertilized outside a woman’s body. Pilcher-Cook also argued during the legislative debate this session that fertilized eggs stored in a fertilization clinic’s freezer have the same inherent value as people who already are born. She told the Capital-Journal last week that she hopes to co-sponsor legislation next session that will have bipartisan support.
