Call To Die

Then [Jesus] said to them all, "If anyone wants to come with Me, he must deny himself, take up his cross daily, and follow Me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life because of Me will save it. (Luke 9:23-24, HCSB)

Soylent Green is people

As most people reading this blog are probably already aware, this week President Obama lifted the ban on destroying unborn babies for the purpose of stem cell research. This means that certain people will be harvested for the (theoretical) benefit of other people. (Hence the darkest-of-dark-humor title for this post.)

I've found the following three articles to be particularly helpful in thinking about this issue:

"Obama’s Embryo Destruction Extremism: Time for Obama’s Pro-Life Supporters to Face the Facts," by Yuval Levin (HT:: Justin Taylor).

"The Floodgate is Now Open -- President Obama and the Vulnerable Embryo," by Albert Mohler.

"Destroying Human Life at Tax-payers’ Expense," by Denny Burk.
