Default Test-tube Baby Pioneer wins Nobel Prize for Medicine

The British scientist who helped create the first test-tube baby was awarded the Nobel Prize for medicine Monday.

And nobody was happier for Robert Edwards than Louise Brown, who on July 25, 1978, became the first ever child born through in vitro fertilization.

"It's fantastic news," Brown said in an e-mail. "We hold Bob in great affection and are delighted to send our personal congratulations to him and his family at this time."

Edwards and research partner Patrick Steptoe did their pioneering work in the face of harsh criticism from The Vatican and some medical ethicists.

But since Brown's birth, some 4 million test-tube babies have been born to women - more than 500,000 in the U.S. alone. And Brown has become a mom, too, although she did it the old-fashioned way.

God, be merciful to me!
Help Thou my unbelief!
Let me see in Him that Thou would have me see in my fellow man.
Let me see in my brother that I see in Him whom I worship.

John 7:19
Did not Moses give you the law, and yet none of you keepeth the law?

Remember, always, the Angels wish...Selah!
