The Stem Cell Divide

Loading...
The use of embryonic stem cells for medical research is an issue that has unleashed passionate political controversy nationwide. Many conservative religious groups oppose it on the grounds that using embryonic stem cells involves destroying a life at its earliest stage. Researchers and doctors working with embryonic stem cells, specifically with the Somatic Cell Nuclear Transfer (SCNT) procedure, insist that those early stem cells are not human life. The researchers contend that they would never use the DNA in the stem cells to create human life -- only to conduct biomedical research that they hope will lead to cures for such maladies as cancer, Parkinson s disease, Alzheimer s, multiple sclerosis, diabetes and spinal cord injuries. Embryonic stem cells offer much hope for medical ad [...]

A Death in the Family

Loading...
A Death in the Family is an anatomy of what family members experience as they gather to say goodbye to their loved one, witness his execution, then bring his body back home to bury him. During the long course of judicial appeals, the Bannister verdict had been regarded by many as a grave injustice. Jesse Jackson and Ed Asner had petitioned the Missouri governor for clemency. But Bannister s attorney felt that the Missouri attorney general was determined to "kill A.J.". On the day of the execution, a small group of anti-death-penalty protestors gathered outside the prison, while pro-death-penalty activists carried signs that read "Die. Die. Die." The family members are allowed one last visit. His mother laments : "It s not only the condemned man they re punishing. It s a whole family. [...]

Raising Hell [electronic resource]: The Life of A.J. Bannister

Loading...
This is a contemporary story of crime and punishment in the Midwest. It tells the story of death-row inmate Alan (A.J.) Bannister, who killed a man in a trailer park in a struggle over a gun. The film reconstructs his troubled life from his childhood in a rural, working class community in central Illinois, where he was a good student and active in sports, to his gradual descent into a life of petty crime In his three years of researching the case, the filmmaker uncovered startling new evidence that the killing was not a contract killing, as the prosecution asserted, but second degree murder, which would not carry the death sentence. Raising Hell approaches a tense climax as A.J. s execution date is set. As the day approaches, the viewer is taken inside the death watch cell to experie [...]

Oh Freedom After While [electronic resource]

One morning in 1939 residents of southeastern Missouri awoke to a startling sight. More than 1,000 African-American sharecroppers had camped out alongside two state highways, taking a stand against the corrupt planters and marginalizing government decrees that made it impossible for them to ever escape economic disparity. Narrated by Julian Bond, this film tells the story of their labor strike, mixing commentary from former sharecroppers and scholars with striking archival footage. Despite the odds, the 1939 Sharecroppers' Strike attracted national attention and changed government policies that had previously condemned rural blacks to an endless cycle of poverty.
