Miscellaneous meanderings and philosophical ramblings. The title from a spiral notebook I used to jot down my thoughts on religion and other matters some years ago. I like to write, think and express my views on various issues. Robust discussion is welcome.

The Slope Is Apparently Vertical

At times arguments are made that something, if allowed, will remove logical barriers to further actions that will be quite detrimental, though what is being proposed may seem rather harmless.

One argument, among many, against embryonic stem cell research is that allowing it, would create pressures to harvest stem cells from the preborn, to have pregnancies created just to take the material desired for medical research. Some have scoffed at such claims and proposed that substantial safeguards could be put in place to avoid the financial pressures that would undoubtedly be placed on the poor.

Still, the logical barriers would largely be removed and not much left in the way of a further degradation of societal mores and standards of ethics. The desire for fame due to research success and the desire for comfort in this life, due to such technology and the money that would be made available by some, would combine to create enormous pressures to slide down that slippery slope.

But, if the following is true, that slope was nothing but the face of a vertical wall that some decided to "bravely" leap from. The result being that the worst predictions may already be coming true.

Ukraine babies in stem cell probe

Healthy new-born babies may have been killed in Ukraine to feed a flourishing international trade in stem cells, evidence obtained by the BBC suggests.


The BBC has spoken to mothers from the city of Kharkiv who say they gave birth to healthy babies, only to have them taken by maternity staff.

A sad state of affairs, to say the least. I really hope this story turns out to be wrong, rather than just gets covered up.

Mat 19:13 Then were there brought unto him little children, that he should put his hands on them, and pray: and the disciples rebuked them.
Mat 19:14 But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.

The pictures show organs, including brains, have been stripped - and some bodies dismembered.

A senior British forensic pathologist says he is very concerned to see bodies in pieces - as that is not standard post-mortem practice.

It could possibly be a result of harvesting stem cells from bone marrow.

No doubt, the reaction of some will be, no bigee, as long as we get longer life with less worries about injury or disease, what does it matter?

Hospital number six denies the allegations.

Hopefully, their denial will have much more truth to it than a finger waging, former U.S. President. We may very well be seeing the start of another chapter in this horrifying disregard for human life. It started with abortion on demand and now appears to be moving forward quite briskly to satisfy the narcissistic drive of some for healthy living, regardless of what it takes to get there.

Mat 18:5 And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me.
Mat 18:6 But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.
