400,000 Frozen Human Embryos

By Angela Wittman

Dear Friends,

I remember as a child spending lazy summer afternoons reading The Adventures of Superman, and other science fiction comic books with my older brother. We would save up our allowance, and my brother would walk to the local quick shop to buy us ice cream bars and comic books. I can also remember the time he regretfully bought the most gruesome comic about some mad scientist conducting experiments on unsuspecting human beings. We both agreed the comic was a waste of money, and not to our liking at all... It never entered my mind that I would see a similar horror story become reality as an adult.

I am referring to the barbaric Stem Cell Research Enhancement Act passed in Congress by a vote of 238 - 194. One can only wonder what our Representatives are thinking? This act allows approximately 400,000 frozen human being embryos to be used for research. It reminds me of some old black and white jungle movie where a cannibalistic tribe captures unsuspecting people to put them in a pot of stew, then literally has them for dinner, and saves their shrunken heads as souvenirs.

To put it mildly, I am appalled at the barbarism of the "it's all about me" generation, commonly referred to as "Baby Boomers." How do they plan to justify to Almighty God the making of these human lives for infertility reasons, and then since they don't need them anymore, using them for human experimentation in the name of medical health and science? What kind of depraved mind would come up with such evil?

America, have you no shame? Is this what our nation, which was once a city shining on a hill for the whole world to see, come to? We are creating children and then using their body parts for experiments. Does this not sound insane to you?

Each member of Congress who voted for this bill has the blood of 400,000 human beings on their hands -- frozen or not. Shame on Congress! Shame on America! Shame on the Church for not rising up and condemning this horrendous act of barbarism! Animals are not even this vile.

I pray America will come to her senses before she completely destroys herself... After all, Heaven is watching. Now which will America choose? Life or even more death?

May America not forget these words spoken by Almighty God:
I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live... (Deuteronomy 30:19)

If thou forbear to deliver them that are drawn unto death, and those that are ready to be slain; If thou sayest, Behold, we knew it not; doth not he that pondereth the heart consider it? and he that keepeth thy soul, doth not he know it? and shall not he render to every man according to his works? (Proverbs 24: 11,12)

I pray America still has a little fear of God left, and will choose life.
