Since Mr. Alleged Low Self-Esteem brought Catholicism into the mix, let me just venture a thought that the less religious among us surely suspect comes from the anti-embryo destruction crowd: people who believe in a just and merciful God just have trouble imagining how he would create a world in which great life-transforming human benefit comes from slicing human embryos into omelettes to confirm Mary Tyler Moore or Michael J. Fox. I simply believe in my heart and soul that this cannot and will not pan out.
How can murdering embryos yield results if the word of the Lord in the book of Jeremiah says “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you”?
