  • Baby Conceived to be a Donor of Cells; Fourteen Embryos Discarded
    she needed So by in vitro fertilization they produced fifteen embryos which they sent to a genetic testing facility Only one of the embryos had the right genetic material It was implanted in Mrs Nash who in August gave birth to Adam Two weeks ago Adam s stem cells were taken from his umbilical cord and implanted in his sister Naturally the Nashes are pleased at the outcome of what they call an awesome and monumental experience But thoughtful Christians should respond differently to what has happened here Despite all the celebration and the medical justification the fact remains that Adam was in the words of columnist Ellen Goodman conceived not just to be a son but a medical treatment Instead of being an end with all the God given dignity that implies Adam was a means valuable only insofar as he carried the right genetic material And if he hadn t he would have been rejected like the other fourteen discarded embryos What s more the technology and the worldview that made Adam possible can t and won t be limited to noble purposes like preserving life We re fast approaching a world where kids will be seen to exist merely to enhance their parents sense of fulfillment And even if they aren t conceived as merely a source of spare parts they will still through genetic manipulation be made to embody their parents ideas of an ideal child Parents creating the personality of their kids fits our narcissistic culture but it is dehumanizing in the extreme Now nobody should doubt that as soon as technology permits parents will be screening embryos for desirable and undesirable genetic traits In this kind of world as technology critic Jeremy Rifkin puts it children are the ultimate shopping experience If our culture

  • The Day I Became Pro-Life
    nearly exsanguinated on the way home I looked at the assisting nurse She nearly bled to death last time This isn t her first abortion The doctor continued talking in his disinterested monotone and I watched as the contents of the woman s womb came through a suctioning device and into a stainless steel pail sitting at his feet I stepped back and wiped the perspiration from my brow This is kind of gruesome I said Was there some special reason she didn t want to have her baby She wanted an abortion the nurse replied and we re required by law to do what she wants The doctor had been listening to our conversation As he stood up he said At this point in a pregnancy the products of conception aren t much I knew the emphasis on products of conception was for my benefit Is that what you have in that pail I thought Does that make it easier for you I did not have the courage to put into words what I was thinking I ve always regretted that I stepped forward and peered into the pail This time I broke out in a cold sweat I backed up and leaned against the wall my eyes closed Dear Jesus I thought I just saw someone murdered And I just stood and watched Why did I come down here How will I ever put this out of my mind Are you OK the voice of the nurse brought me back I m sorry I smiled weakly I just never realized what it was like Do you assist with these all the time More than I care to admit the nurse said Actually I can handle one but when they come back for the second or third time it
