Though they say it will cure terrible diseases, these experiments are evil.
They experimented on 10 severely abnormal embryos left over from traditional fertility treatment.
The embryos then began to develop normally, but were destroyed within six days.
Can you hear their justifications? “They were abnormal anyway. They would not have lived a full life. It’s alright because we destroyed them six days later.”
This world’s hatred for the imperfect, the small, and the elderly ought to cause widespread outrage. We sit idly by while millions of people are destroyed in the name of science, or worse, convenience.
Is there a fundamental difference between what these scientists are doing with people (yes, people!) and what the Nazis did with the Jews? I don’t think so.
Life begins at conception. Though we can’t see it yet, the complicated mass of multiplying cells has a face.
How would you like to be the guinea pig? How would you feel if these were your children they were playing with?
Francis Schaeffer was right about where Roe v. Wade would take us. He indicated that Roe v. Wade was just the tip of the iceburg. He said that if we take “freedom of choice” and follow it to its logical conclusion, we will see our culture devolve to one of death. We can expect to see greater acceptance of “death with dignity” and cases like those of Terri Schaivo.
This is where we find ourselves. And I’m afraid, if we are not already there, we are speeding toward a point of no return.
Stories like this disturb me. I have no idea how to combat these kinds of activities in labs around the world, though. Do you? As an American, I can vote for men and women who value life in its earliest and latest stages, but that is only indirect involvement. As a child of God, I must pray for the gospel to spread. Fear of God, new hearts, and renewed minds are the ultimate remedies for this world.
While I am profoundly thankful for His patience and grace, knowing how sin abounds in this world (not to mention my own heart) causes me to look forward to His imminent return. We desperately need His rule over this earth.
