Day 14 -99 Babies Saved

Tonight I write with great heaviness. The reversal of the stem cell research is heart breaking. I know there are many others out there rejoicing, especially people who are paralyzed, or with terminal illnesses, and of course, all the scientist involved. At first glance this is great news, helping those that are already alive obtain the greatest happiness and quality of life. Look, I admit, happiness is important to me also but there are a couple of questions I have been pondering. What is happiness and who defines it? It seems in order to think on this, you would have to examine the foundation of what you believe. If you believe that happiness is acquired on your own, then this is a dog eat dog world, where the strong destroy the weak in order to get the most happiness and quality of life they can, because happiness is of your own creation and defined by you. Basically, Social Darwinism, survival of the fittest. Kind of like the people alive are stronger than the people not born yet, excuse me, I meant to say embryonic cells. So they destroy the weaker for their own personal happiness and boast in the accomplishment. But, if you have faith and are sick and paralyzed, your idea of happiness will not come from the destruction of another human being because you know that true happiness can never be obtained that way. Only through obeying the Lord and respecting life is true joy obtained. We are taught to love our neighbors, care for the elderly and orphans, and protect the weak. Not destroy the weak. We are taught to protect life, that it is a precious gift of God. Not experiment on it, and use it to satisfy our desires, and needs of advancement and fulfillment. God is not only the giver of life, but He also grants the enjoyment of life.
John 10:10 says The devil comes to kill, steal and destroy, but I have come that they may have life and more abundantly.
One of the kids at work said, Miss Pam - they kill the babies, steal their stem cells and destroy the mothers. I don't think anyone could say it any better, and I don't believe any of the people involved in the destruction of babies - from the abortionist, to the scientist, to the ones being treated with the embryonic cells will have happiness they so crave, because God doesn't bless killing and destruction. May the Lord have mercy on the United States.

Please go to Wells of Hope to read an article on Margaret Sanger and Eugenics, (the founder of Planned Parenthood) that was written today.

me too, I was sad about the stem cell research overturned. I don't follow the news all that much so I don't know all the details about it, or even much about the how's of where and what type of situations the scientists get the stem cells. ~~ maybe I just don't want to know :O( ~~

I loved your comment on my book review post! you have such a great heart, and the Lord's blessing is poured out all over you both now, and what ever may come in the future!

thanks for the read today. you have a beautiful heart :O)
