An Analysis of the Petition of Deception
Commentary by Jim Day
St. Louis MetroVoice
forces in the so-called scientific community, who have unlimited
funds and political and civic backing, have been challenged by
the ethical and moral communities who espouse the dignity of life
at its earliest stages.
The scientific community is represented by the innocuously named
“Missouri Coalition for Life Saving Cures,” (referred to as the
“Coalition” going forward)
- a name which was surely chosen by a public relations firm to
give cover to the Coalition’s deceptive purposes. At stake are
the ethical and moral underpinnings of the basic concept of the
right to life. This battle is over a proposed Missouri constitutional
amendment sponsored by the Coalition, which would permit unbridled
stem cell research of every kind.
In order to get their amendment on the ballot for a vote in 2006,
it will be necessary for the Coalition to convince more than 150,000
Missouri citizens to sign an initiative petition. Under Missouri
law, the initiative petition must contain a title that fairly
reflects and describes the contents of the proposed amendment.
To put it bluntly, the title of the initiative petition is insufficient,
unfair, misleading, illegal, and outright deceptive in that it
does not give fair notice of the subject of the proposed amendment
or its contents. Fortunately, a lawsuit has been filed by the
Alliance Defense Fund to stop the ballot process on that basis.
Stem Cell Research: the Basics
By Rev. Dr. James I. Lamb
voted to spend 3 billion dollars on it.
Movie stars promote it.
Major news publications have covered it extensively.
We are talking about stem
cell research. What
stand should a Christian take on this issue? We can answer that question relatively easily
when we understand some basics about stem cell research.
Understanding when Life Begins
question of when life begins is a scientific question. The scientists most qualified to answer are
concur that life begins when the genetic material of egg
and sperm join at conception. Medical schools teach this in their embryology
affirms this scientific truth.
“Surely I was sinful at birth, sinful from the time
my mother conceived me” (Psalm 51:5 NIV). Since we are sinful from the moment of conception,
we must be human beings from the moment of conception. This is precisely why Jesus was “conceived by
the Holy Spirit.” He
had to pass through all stages of human development to redeem
us from our sinful human nature.
Understanding the Source of Embryonic Stem Cells
we hear so much about is embryonic
stem cell research (ESCR).
Embryonic stem cells are derived from a human embryo
at about 5 days after conception.
At this stage, the human being is a hallow ball with
a thin outside layer only a single cell thick. Once the
embryo reaches the uterus, this layer forms the placenta. Inside this hallow ball is a cluster of cells. These cells will soon begin to differentiate
into the various tissues—nerve, muscle, skin, etc.—that
make up the human body.
Each of these cells, then, has the potential to become
any tissue in the body.
These are the “stem cells” that researchers want
to use in an effort to treat disease.
However, a five-day old human being must be destroyed
in order to obtain these stem cells.
