Lives Sacrificed On The Altar Of Scientific Progress: New Research Seeks To Create Synthetic Human Beings

“And nothing that they propose to do will now be impossible for them” (Genesis 11:6). These chilling words from the account of the tower of Babel in Genesis 11 came to mind regarding this summary of a news article reporting on horrific new research out of Israel that created “‘complete’ models of human embryos” in the lab. These scientists, by disregarding the value of human life, have decided that “nothing will now be impossible” as they try to create synthetic human life. So how were these models created? Well, the scientists took “naive” embryonic stem cells, a process that necessarily involves the destruction—the killing (murder)—of a human life, and “reprogrammed [them] to gain the potential to become any type of tissue in the body.” … Through this research, scientists hope to be able to accomplish some good things—such as discovering the causes of early miscarriage, treating various diseases, or testing medications to ensure they won’t harm pregnant women and their unborn babies. But the ends (saving human lives) don’t justify the means (killing human lives)—every human life matters, including the lives of embryos in the science lab! As technology advances, it has the potential to be used for great good or great evil. Since humans are inherently sinful with hearts in rebellion against God, it shouldn’t surprise us to see technology used with such callousness. But as those with a biblical worldview and the truth of God’s Word, we must stand against any research that destroys human life, commodifies humans, or attempts to “play god” in creating life…(READ MORE)
