As the Creator, God is the source of life. The Word of God in The Holy Scriptures reveals the divine commitment to the sanctity of life.
One of the ways we deepen our reverence for human life and for the Creator is by guarding life from the moment of conception. Unfortunately, innocent human life is often not cherished but is destroyed. This is the tragedy of abortion.
Embryonic Stem Cell Research is appalling, knowing that we are sacrificing an innocent life for the 'supposed' sake of another which is deemed of more value. It will never be right to condone the taking of one life, against it's will, to prolong another life. This brings humanity down to the primal level of beasts, although many animals have a higher moral code than to do this! Call it maternal instinct if you will, and then ask, why are humans beginning to lack such a basic instinct?
Psalm 22:9-10 (King James Version)
9But thou art he that took me out of the womb: thou didst make me hope when I was upon my mother's breasts.
10I was cast upon thee from the womb: thou art my God from my mother's belly.
