Embryo Adoption & the Media
This is a longer post I know. Please do not pass over this. Would you read it?
With a presidential election coming soon, all of the “hot” topics are getting plenty of media time. One of those “hot” buttons is abortion vs. the right to life.
Those who believe life is at conception, but abortion should be permitted for instances of rape or incest, please take 7 minutes to watch this. Please do. It is not an “angry” video. It is love. This is my former pastor from our sister church here in Texas. Please watch it. I don’t post videos often do I?
Next, because of the hot topic of abortion vs. the right to life, embryo adoption has been getting a bit more “air” time. Has it been favorable? Are people speaking the truth? Here is an article published by an unbeliever at Huff Post a couple of weeks ago titled, “Evangelicals Embryo Adoption: Devout Christians Seek A Future For Thousands Of Frozen Embryos” . When you read this, you can tell that the journalist does not believe life is at conception by her wording in several instances throughout the brief article. She does give awareness to the 600,000 reported frozen embryos presently in the USA though. So exposure is good. I won’t go into the issues that come to mind as I read the article at this time, though I am sure your brain is spinning too with some comments of your own.
Here are a few comments, just on the first page of the hundreds of comments to this article. I wouldn’t continue to the rest of the comments.
“I simply do not see a frozen embryo as a child. I see it only as a potential child.”
That is correct. They have been fully human this whole time. Well, Jezebel and the rest of the naysayers, say what you will. We know differently.
