“In each of us, two natures are at war–the good and the evil. All our lives the fight goes on between them, and one of them must conquer. But in our own hands lies the power to choose.” Robert Louis Stevenson
Despite having crafted a rule that defunds Planned Parenthood, all is not pro-life in the Trump Administration. The Health and Human Services Department has not just overlooked but endorsed a funding extension (the second one) for experiments to create humanized mice. The experiments require human body parts–parts harvested from babies aborted late-term.
CNSNews reports that the experimentation at the University of California at San Francisco “creates a demand–driven by federal tax dollars–for tissue taken from late-term aborted babies. According to an estimate it has published on its website, the National Institutes of Health (which is a division of HHS) will spend $95 million this fiscal year alone on research that–like UCSF’s ‘humanized mouse’ contract–uses human fetal tissue.
“Under the new 90-day extension, the contract—which the government calls ‘Humanized Mouse Models for HIV Therapeutics Development’–will run through June 5.”
Whereupon, we must ask whether HHS will grant yet another extension.
Allowing this atrocity to continue gives a sense of schizophrenia to the Trump Administration–who, on one hand, are calling out Democrats for supporting abortion until birth–and infanticide after birth–and on the other hand–approving this practice
The President calls late-term abortion execution. So why are we executing late-term unborn children in the name of science?
There can be no abortion that redeems itself in research–for the good of someone else. To take one life in the hope (and it is a mere hope) of saving someone else is the stuff of bad science fiction, the stuff of dehumanizing oppression of the worst kind.
The Trump Administration–America itself–must decide whether good or evil will be the nature of our land. Will we be a nation where all people are created equal with rights? Or will we be a horrid shadow of nations who’ve used the weak to fortify the strong?
We must decide. And history will forever note that decision.
