All commenters are therefore politely asked to ensure that their posts respond directly to points raised in the particular article or by fellow contributors, and that all responses are respectful.
Wonderful! I agree that adult stem cell research is right and embryonic stem cell research is wrong. Children in the womb are regarded as human persons in Scripture. God create us in His image and likeness Gn:1:26-27. David said he did that in our mother’s womb,”you formed me in my mother’s womb” Ps 139:13-15. And didn’t John the Baptist leap in his mother’s womb at Christ arrival in His Mother’s womb showing the value of the unborn
(Lk 1:41)? Accordingly, since the Bible condemns murder (Ex 20:13) and since Jesus showed a special concern for children because of their vulnerability and is explicit in his condemnation of those who who hurt these little ones (see Mt 18 1-6) this is welcomed news indeed.
