Design Your Own Baby

November 14, 2005

The latest scientific “advance” will allow women to determine at an earlier stage if the baby they are carrying has the extra chromosome that produces downs syndrome, or mental retardation. The media say this gives women more power and information to allow them to be informed about such things. The not-so-subtle message is that abortion will be easier because the test will be performed in the first trimester of pregnancy and not later as is now the case.

We are moving closer to a society that practices eugenics. Only the perfect and the wanted will be allowed to be born, or once born, to live. If they do not fit in with out materialistic, burden-free philosophy, they can be eliminated, though we won’t call it elimination. They’re already calling the abortion of one or more multiple babies “selective reduction.” Count on the pro-death crowd to make it easier to swallow murder.

Sex selection, talent selection, babies on demand coming soon. This is what happens to a nation that forgets God and then seeks to play god.
