Are We Not Human?

While experiments on aborted children, many of them still living, are already ongoing in our cities and at universities, they have, until recently, been privately funded.

With the Biden Administration removing limits on experimentation involving unborn children, taxpayers will now be paying for atrocities many of us would call unimaginable.

Those doing the research say it’s good.

They’ve usurped the place of God–deciding the functions and fates of people whose lives should be beyond their reach.

What’s happening today in America is reminiscent of H.G. Wells’s The Island of Dr. Moreau, the fictional account of a man who washes up on the shore of an island where a mad scientist is creating human/animal hybrids–creatures who are part-human, part-animal.

Wells illustrates how animalistic humans can be, how we can be as savage, perhaps more savage than the beasts of the forest.

In today’s reality, researchers are injecting monkey embryos with hESC (human embryonic stem cells) harvested from late-term unborn children, abortion victims. Fully developed, capable of feeling pain. The goal is to produce human organs within the monkeys for transplant.

Such evil, albeit with good intentions, goes deeper than we realize. Petra Wallenmeyer provides some insight:

“People on one side of this issue [favoring such research] argue this practice is necessary for scientific advancement, will benefit vast numbers of people by developing treatments for various diseases, and is ethical because no valuable human is being harmed in this research (emphasis mine). Therefore, federal and/or state funds should be allocated for such research (i.e., through grants or awards).”

Because of the rules change, funds are now available.

But notice the ethical gymnastics involved in justifying this practice. The end result may (or may not) be something good–“a scientific advancement”–to “benefit vast numbers of people.” This assessment dictates that some humans are deserving of beneficial treatment, i.e. the receipt of transplantable organs to be gathered from animal hosts. But for that to happen, others must be deemed not valuable, therefore deserving of dissection and distribution into vials so animal hosts can produce organs for transplant.

With such methodology, scientists have already developed mice with human skin.

While it goes on around us, few are discussing the ramifications of such “work”.

One of the few, Kristen Matthews of Rice University, explains the ethical questions that may arise from this research.

“Should it (the resulting human/animal living being) be regulated as human because it has a significant proportion of human cells in it? Or should it be regulated just as an animal? Or something else?” Matthews said. “At what point are you taking something and using it for organs when it actually is starting to think and have logic?”

Or at what point will it matter if science deems “it” to be a life void of value–whether human or otherwise? And the questions press us to further ask whether any creature labeled an animal might be entitled to greater protection than one labeled human–but considered to be of no “value”.

Science has derailed when some humans are valuable to save and others are only good for spare parts.

In such a world, every person potentially can become someone not of value, available to be sacrificed for the sake of another, more highly esteemed person.

Yet there remain many who will tell us it is all good.

Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;

Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness;

Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!

Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes

And clever in their own sight! Isaiah 5: 20-21~

  1. It’s chilling to know scientists take tissue from a living baby while it can feel pain before they kill it to make vaccines and other experiments like you’ve mentioned. The end does not justify the means. If the foundation is faulty, then how can the building be sound?

    1. And if the people have no vision, they perish. We must understand who we are–imago Dei–the image of God–old or young, strong or weak, sick or well. Thank you, Deb. God bless!

  2. Nancy, thank you for sharing horrific practices we should continue to pray and speak against.

  3. Nancy, you are correct. We don’t read or hear about these horrible experiments very often. Thank you for bringing the situations to us. Prayer is definitely needed today and every day.

  4. To echo what someone said above — how chilling! Amen to Isaiah’s words: Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil.

  5. The “no valuable person” concept chills me. If we have human rights, then they are given by our Creator God, and not by the scientific community. Thanks for raising this issue to the light so I can pray about it.

  6. How far we have fallen as a society, when horrific practices are deemed normative “for the greater good.” Words already used in previous comments – barbaric, chilling – are apt. Activities such as these remind me of science fiction or horror stories, but the worst is that this is not fiction. May God have mercy on us!

  7. This is like reading an incomprehensible reality! How can living human infants be used for experimentation? The choice a woman makes to abort her baby allows the scientific community to do the unimaginable — experimentation on a baby who could have been born to live a full life, yet the mother decided the baby would not live. God sees, and he is just. Vengeance belongs to the Lord. All will be made right.

    1. This shows how low we can go, but God has shown mercy to many. Abby Johnson aborted two babies–one surgically, another chemically. When she came to understand the horror from the babies’ perspective, she became a voice for life. So many do. We need to pray for those in the abortion and research “industries”–for they are moneymakers–and ask God to show them the truth of the sanctity of life. Thank you, Melinda. And God bless!

  8. I got chills reading your post. It is scary in the fact that it is really happening. And, as I get older, when will I be deemed useless to our society. Thanks Nancy for making us aware of this situation

  9. I’ve been pro-life for decades (director of a Life Center once upon a time), but I was unaware of this research that you expose. Thank you for sounding the alarm.

  10. Thank you for bringing this to light, Nancy. So many atrocities go quietly unnoticed. This makes my soul ache. Oh Lord, open the eyes of those who are playing god with human lives. Help us, Jesus. Our nation is so lost and getting worse with each passing day.

  11. Woe to these experiments.
    Woe to this research.
    Woe to those making the decisions on the value of life.
    Woe to us if we remain silent.
    Woe to us if we don’t pray.
    Woe to us if we give hearty approval.
