Yet again, today marks another milestone. March 9, 2009 is the day that our current Administration has authorized Federal Tax Dollars to be used for the continued MURDER of the unborn, in hope of a cure for diseases. The President stated, "I cannot guarantee that we will find the cures and treatments we seek…" The President further stated that this would not open up a door to Human Cloning, but "we will develop strict guidelines, which we will rigorously enforce, because we cannot tolerate misuse and abuse…and will ensure that our government never opens the door to the use of cloning for human reproduction. It is dangerous, profoundly wrong, and has no place in our society, or any society." Well, Mr. President, I am not a rocket scientist, nor a Biotechnologist, but I am a believer of God and His Son Jesus Christ, and that being stated, Mr. President you JUST DID what you said you would NOT DO. The door is not just opened, but the flood gates have begun to rush in. SHAME ON US!
How can those in power think that by destroying a LIFE would be a good thing for the HOPE of prevented disease? This is preposterous and abominable. We must protect LIFE at all its stages from the earliest of inception (the Embryonic Stage) to its end.
We are NOT GOD! We do NOT have the right to decide who lives and who dies. We do NOT have the right to decied what can be thrown out and what is to be kept…in a Petri dish. Life is so precious; have we reached a point in the Worlds History that we THINK we are so smart that we can create and destroy life whenever we need a HOPE for a cure of something? What will our future hold, killing innocent babies, because we HOPE it might cure Allergies? WRONG, WRONG, this is WRONG, and those that sit on the sidelines without speaking up are just as guilty as those who are in power to destroy LIFE with the single stroke of a pen.
I am reminded of the Words of our Lord and Savior, "Father, forgive them, for they know NOT what they do!" I ask the Father to forgive us for thinking that we are so smart that we are and can act like Him. Father, forgive us for taking a LIFE, for the HOPE of a cure. Father, forgive us, for throwing life away as if it were a dirty snot rag. Father, forgive us, for not seeing YOUR Son, in the unborn and doing more to protect them.
This begs the question; how can we trust a Government to act responsibly, that says it will, yet again, "develop strict guidelines,…(to) enforce," when this same Government cannot control its own loaning and spending of Tax Payers monies. We give Billions of Dollars to companies and corporations and they in turn take expensive trips, vacations, I mean work outings…WHAT EVER YOU WANT TO CALL IT…this is the same Government that is going to regulate privatized business who seek to earn BILLIONS of dollars for coming up with a possible cure? Where will the eggs come from for the scientists to conduct their experiments? It will come from the continued EXPLOITATION of Poor and Marginalized women. In this current state of our Economy, more and more women will be lured into selling their eggs, thus continuing to put their own health and lives in jeopardy, for monies that are desperately needed. They will continue to be LIED to by our Government and scientists that the procedure is not a painful one or a harmful one, when in essence it IS!
This is an ABOMONATION and is a great tragedy in our lifetime, and we cannot continue to sit back and continue to do NOTHING…we MUST fight for the unborn, we must fight for the PROTECTION OF LIFE at ALL OF ITS STAGES and we must realize that WE ARE NOT GOD…ONLY GOD CAN CREATE LIFE! We must speak out for those who cannot speak for themselves, we must continue to stand for those who have no voice, yet we must also be compassionate for those who suffer and seek other, alternative, SAFE methodologies for seeking cures, and NOT KILLING INNOCENT BABIES!
"Lord, FORGIVE YOUR PEOPLE!" Jesus, Mary and Joseph, PRAY FOR US!
