What if little Sam had been sacrificed in the early stages of his development for stem cell research? Without even realizing it, we would have been robbed of one of the most excellent blessings God gives.
What if the recipient of little Sam's stem cells happened to be an uncaring, hateful person who had spent their life doing terrible things? Perhaps a tyrant or a murderer or a child predator who should have been locked away, but instead gets a chance to be cured from some dreadful disease so that they can go out and destroy the lives of more innocent people?
I know there are some wonderful people that may benefit from stem cell research, but there have been great strides in adult stem cell research that should be investigated before we sacrifice our precious children.
I shudder at the thought of creating a life only to destroy it for the sake of science. In my mind, this is just as bad, if not worse than abortion or infanticide.
