What’s the Point of Regaining My Health but Losing My Humanity?

baby-hand2This link is for the 8th of 12 videos produced by the Center For Medical Progress. This one features baby parts buyer StemExpress Founder and CEO, Cate Dyer, saying they want 50 MORE fetal livers PER WEEK. And as they say, Planned Parenthood is a good source because of their volume of abortions.

It is stated on their website (StemExpress.com): “StemExpress fuels regenerative medicine and tranlational research by supplying human-derived specimens to biomedical researchers around the world. Founded in 2010, StemExpress is the only company of its kind to procure tissues and isolate cells for researchers’ individual needs in its own labs.”

In their mission statement they say “StemExpress is dedicated to saving lives by accelerating the cure and prevention of disease.” Do you see something wrong in this?  It sounds so good until you consider that the “human-derived specimens” are often aborted children! These are the intact specimens to which they refer.

Proper ethics dictates that it is wrong to use the bodies of intentionally murdered human beings (fetal or otherwise) to save other human beings. This is not legitimate medical research. Society must never sanction such things. Society must outlaw such practices and punish those involved.

Through massive federal and state funding for Planned Parenthood, the United States is sanctioning barbarism that would have appalled previous generations dating back to America’s Founding Fathers.

As someone incurably ill and disabled with multiple sclerosis (MS) I dream of a cure that would return me to full able-bodied health. But I don’t want any treatment or cure derived from the taking of another life. If my cure comes from the death of an unborn child I will refuse it, as tempting as deliverance from a horrible disease may be. For more than 30 years I have wanted a cure — but not at that price.

What is the point of regaining my health but losing my humanity?
