    How chilling

    1. It’s “only for science” and that makes conceiving human life with human rights for our experimentation ok?

    2 it may “someday help avoid inherited diseases ” is this the road to hell that is paved with “good” intentionss?

    3 “we only allowed a few days of development” – snuffing out human life after only a few days is morally acceptable?

    4. “We never intended to implant this life into a womb” -so, it’s ok as long as we agree on the plan from the get go?

    5. “Only done previously in china” – doesn’t this say it all?

    Life begins at conception and ends with natural death and all life deserves protection especially the most vulnerable and defenesless

    Do you see the progression from treating human life as disposable when it’s only days old to the selling of baby parts by PP?
