This is pretty sick!! Then again it is Planned Parenthood

gift-certificatesThe Washington Times ran an article last week about the Indiana chapter of Planned Parenthood, the nations leading abortion advocate, offering gift certificates for Christmas gifts. These can be used for a wide range of “contraceptive” services, including abortion. To tie this season with abortion and the destruction of babies is simply, well, sick and evil. Pray that God will open the eyes of the USA to the evil destruction of precious life.

Interesting, and sad, the Indiana health commissioner endorsed this program:

The program has been endorsed by Dr. Judy Monroe, Indiana health commissioner, who called it a “really a meaningful gift.”

The certificates, which come in $25 increments, work like cash and come with no restrictions and no expiration date. They can be purchased at many of the group’s Indiana clinics and online, and can be used for some insurance co-payments and medication.

Also read Dr. Al Mohler’s commentary on this.

Mississippi Baptist Convention — thank you for the reminder

mississippi-life-displayThe Mississippi Baptist Convention a built a memorial to the 50,000,000 members of the lost generation since 1973 and the Roe v. Wade ruling of the U.S. Supreme Court that allowed the killing of babies in the womb. This is 50,000,000 pennies, each one representing the death of an unborn child. Some impressive visual illustration as the 36th Anniversary of the Roe Decision approaches in January. The story:

Jackson, MS (LifeNews.com) — Ever wanted to know what 50 million pennies looks like? A group of pro-life advocates in Mississippi found out as they collected 50 million of the coins for a unique memorial to mark the deaths of unborn children since Roe v. Wade allowed unlimited abortions in 1973. CLICK HERE TO CONTINUE READING

Good News in Adult Stem Cell Research

One of the greatest desires of our generation, and rightly so, is to find a cure to the diseases that plague mankind. For many, myself included, there is a moral question in using embryonic stem cells because it requires starting a life and then destroying it. Arguments are made the the “greater good” should prevail, and that good being finding cures.

For some time now many scientists have been saying that the real key to making significant progress is in work with adult stem cells rather than embryonic cells. Last week the Washington Post ran an article that indicates that scientists have made real progress toward significant results with adult cells. In an article entitled Scientists Reprogram Adult Cells’ Function they stated:

“Scientists have transformed one type of fully developed adult cell directly into another inside a living animal, a startling advance that could lead to cures for a variety of illnesses and sidestep the political and ethical quagmires associated with embryonic stem cell research.

Through a series of painstaking experiments involving mice, the Harvard biologists pinpointed three crucial molecular switches that, when flipped, completely convert a common cell in the pancreas into the more precious insulin-producing ones that diabetics need to survive.”

May this develop into something that will bring great relief to many people in the not so distant future. For this we should diligently pray.

One of the scientists expressed his enthusiasm this way:

“One day, this may allow the doctor to replace the scalpel with a sort of genetic surgery,” Lanza said. “If this can be perfected, it would represent one of the holy grails of medicine.”
