First, i want to say, there has not been that much success with the use of embryonic stem cells. There has been much more success with adult stem
cells. So for all the people thinking this will provide some type of miracle cure for all the worlds medical ills, I say don't hold your breath.
Now here is the ethical and moral delimma for me. Let's say in the future there proves to be great success with embryonic cells. While it may not be
happening now, what keeps scientist from creating embroy's just for the cells and nothing else? It only takes one warped mind for this to happen.
We are a culture of never being satisfied until we have enough. Suppose great medical cures do come from using embryonic stem cells.Do we then begin
to harvest life, just to take it? What gives us, as mere humans the right to decide who lives and who dies? By placing more value on one groups life
We begin to take on the roll of Godplayers. Only one has this right, The Creator, God.
When we act as though we have the right to judge whose life is worthy of keeping and whose life isn't, not only are we superceding the hand of God
but we sink to the depths
of depravty of all mankind.
Where do we draw the line?
What's next? I think it would be miraculous to have this cure, but at what cost?
