  1. Great article. I’ve often thought that a new ‘satire’ needs to be written for our modern day. Perhaps a glimpse into the future, 40 years from now, how we got there and what it would be like. That future could be full of the fruits of our societies’ justification of abortion…a new ‘enlightened’ age in which the aged, the handicapped, the diseased are ‘graciously’ euthanized, solving quality of life, social security and other issues.

May He have mercy upon those who have the this new generation’s ‘blood of the innocent’ upon their hands.

  6. Check out AIGs video on Cloning and Stem Cells . It helps explain what this is all about and that as Christians stem cell research as it is proposed by the majority today should be unacceptable.
