miriam....interesting philosophical question.
Why would only 'christians' be against stem-cell research?
Oh, and by the way, there are a great deal of different views regarding 'christianity'. From what I'm told, the Catholics don't believe in birth
Honestly....we need, as a species, to get our heads out of the sand and see life for what it is. Biology!
This woman in the news lately....who ALREADY had six children, takes a fertility drug (for whatever reason I can't fathom) and gives birth to
Every one of those little Human lives is precious, of course.....but this WOMAN, who now is going to take State Aid to support all of those little
Human lives, is turning into a cancer that eats away at normal Human thinking.
Dogs give birth to multiple litters! Cats do, as well....it is built in, by biology, and evolution....to help each species survive.
Eight fetuses in one woman's womb is not natural!!!! YES, I hope all the babies survive, I'd be less than a Human to think otherwise, BUT....Human
females are not genetically designed for these multiple births!!!
Occasionally, because of very naturalistic events, twins will develop, as the zygote splits....but one sperm, one ova....THAT is the basic structure
for Human reproduction.
SO....to conclude....I used this news of the Octuplet lady to bolster my argument in this discussion. WHY, after already having SIX children, did she
feel the need to get pregnant again??? AND, why use fertility drugs to produce eight...can't call them 'twins'....
OK....I know it seems I went off-topic, but what if I actually have a point?
I mean, for generations we Humans had babies....modern technology in hospital means that the survival rate has improved.....but, aren't we just
another species on a planet that has seen quite a few dominant species fail, over geological time periods??
Yeah....I know.....we're Human, and the 'dominant' species. BUT, a tiny, tiny virus now known as "HIV" has brought us to our knees....not
literally, but it's worse than 'yellow fever' (virus) or the 'plague' (bacterial).....
Or, use the rubicon of of diseases that have plagued Humanity!!!
"HIV" gets its stigma from the Reagan Admistration.....because, 25+ years ago, it was designated as a "GAY" disease. Well, that bull(%) has
sailed, and it ain't being believed anymore.
Simple answer? Stem-cell research, when allowed, will provide incredible benefits....not just to HIV sufferers.
AND, if research will be allowed to continue....NO, there is not a need for fetus' brains stems!!!!
