  Fetal Farming as the Real Goal?
This Paragraph from a recent article may show what the real goal of many Embryonic Stem Cell proponents really is. http://www.usccb.org/prolife/issues/bioethic/cloning/farmfact31805.htm
II. “Fetus Farming”: An Alarming Development
In recent years this debate has shifted in an alarming direction:
With the support of groups favoring research cloning, many states are considering (and some have passed) laws that allow placing cloned human embryos in women’s wombs, but forbid any attempt to let them be born alive. Under these laws, researchers can implant cloned human embryos in wombs, develop them to the fetal stage, then abort them for their cells and tissues (a process some call “fetus farming”).
This legislative trend is based on recent scientific evidence suggesting that therapeutic benefits will not be safely obtained from the cloning of human embryos unless such “fetus farming” is allowed.So the attempt to distinguish therapeutic from reproductive cloning has broken down: What was once called “reproductive” cloning (placing cloned embryos in a womb) is being accepted as a necessary part of so-called “therapeutic” cloning. This new agenda has required a shift in definitions. Increasingly, “reproductive” cloning is said to occur only if a cloned human being is brought to full term and born alive. In this way a law can be called a ban on “reproductive” cloning even if its only legal effect is to mandate abortion for any woman carrying a cloned unborn child in her womb.
Wesley Smith also has voiced concern about these very things also along with Robert George. We really will have to be brave to face this new world of horrors science wants to bring to us. Anybody ready to slide down that slippery slope? I am certainly not. Hat tip to the Life Training Blog for putting these articles in context.

That is so chilling. It sure shows how far humanity has fallen.
 
Thanks Arielle for being brave enough to make a comment. It took me two days to get the comment published because blogger had some major server problems. I am glad they finally got it fixed.
 
It seems that human life has very little value these days. When we consider the abortion rate, the disposal of the elderly and unwell, and now fetus farming.
I read several years ago of how fetus's were being used for research. That alone is a most ugly and unimaginable horror, but to make matters even worse, the article said the babies had to be born alive in order that the tissue/organs, etc would be useable. Basically these little human beings were tortured to death.
I am not a violent person, and this sort of thing breaks my heart, but where the butchers who perform these wicked atrocities are concerned, I do believe they should have the very same things done to them.
 
That is horrendous! I`m going to link it up at my site.
 
Thanks MM and Tim for your concern. It cannot be a Brave New World if human beings are concieved only to be killed and used for parts. I just saw a movie called The Island. I like where one of the charactors says the doctors have a 'God Complex' and lie to the public in order to grow their clones for parts. Pretty good action movie and with a good message.
 
Gad, what must the effect on the women be when they've realized what they've done? At least, I hope they'd realize...
 
I remember The Island. You're right; it was pretty good.

This fetal farming situation is sick stuff, but I'm sorry to say it doesn't surprise me at all.

You mentioned slippery slopes. It's funny how people roll their eyes at this type of argument, & yet they're valid in so many cases.
 
It is truly a sick and dying world we live in. Sin is the disease and God has the only cure. Thanks Nettie and Wes the commenters on this blog are the best. That evil laugh you heard was not your imagination. I am practiceing for my role as a villian.
