Thank you for all your comments, particularly yours, Doni and Lisa. You know, the more I think about it, the more strongly I feel that churches and adoption agencies should become involved in the adoption of frozen embroys. I understand that there’s a seven-year lifespan for these babies on ice, and we would truly be practicing what we preach if we treated these preborn children as the babies they are.
What better way to show the world that embryonic stem cell research is the taking of innocent human life, created in God’s image? Let them see these cells nine months later in the arms of an adoptive mother! They are NOT property!
I think I might do my next community column on this issue . . . my first one appeared in Wednesday’s Tampa Tribune (8/23) . . . if it shows up online, I’ll provide a link. Lisa, if you have documentation for the fact that no fetal experimentation has yet been successful, I could sure use a citation. In any case, I’ll start researching.
Thank you, my friends! Together, we lift our voices!
