We are now seeing the cloning of humans, mixtures of human and animal embryos, embryonic stem cell research (which makes and then destroys human embryos), the destruction of "extra" frozen IVF human embryos, and the sale of human fetal body parts, all presented by the media in very desensitizing ways.
We must recognize that every abortion and every embryo produced and destroyed for "research" causes the death of a living, defenseless human being, who would come to birth if allowed to develop in an uninterrupted way.
Every one of these could be our neighbor, relative, or friend.
Would we want someone we know to be treated this way?
Why do we then allow it to happen just because we haven't met these little ones?
Dignity is due to every human life from fertilization through the moment of natural death.
