Here's a heartbreaking story that was in Sunday's Parade magazine. It's about the daughter of David Axelrod & his wife Sharon.http://www.parade.com/health/2009/02...-epilepsy.html
And yes, she was 'cured' [in a sense], but how about all the others who aren't as fortunate?
I see what you're saying, and my heart goes out to children who are suffering. But, IMO, it's not right for science to deliberately create a human life only for the sake of destroying it to save another.
I've done some thinking about this, and I'm not sure how to feel about using left over embreyos from IFV for this. I know they weren't created to die, but they are the "unlucky" ones. The problem I have with that is they, to me, are STILL a human being with a soul and killing them on purpose, to me, is a sin. Of course, just throwing them away too is killing them.....so I'm torn on that one.
What I'm mainly concerned with it science creating more lives FOR THIS PURPOSE. Or, people going in for IVF and fertilizing 30 eggs knowing they are only going to use 2 or 3 and getting a substanial kickback or selling them outright for this.
I understand both sides of the arguement...my main hangup is when the embreyo becomes a person. For some, it isn't a person until it because a fetus, for other's it's not until it's born and breathed its first breath of air into it's lungs. For me, it's at the moment the sperm and egg meet and make nice. Yeah, it's the size of a pin head at that point, but it's still a human being. Like I said, that's just my opinion and I know others don't agree with me.
