THE PRESIDENT'S DECISION

Rescue those being led away to death... If you say, "But we knew nothing about this," does not He who weighs the heart perceive it? ... Will He not repay each person according to what he has done? (Pr 24:11-12)

OVERVIEW:

President Bush's decision to provide federal funding for human embryonic stem cell research has profound implications for America and the entire Western world. It points to the sad fact that America and the once Christian West have wholly forgotten God and his mandate to uphold, defend and protect innocent human life (See Gen 4:9-11; Ps 82:2-4; 94:20-23; Is 1:16-18, 23; Jer 5:28-29; 22:3)...

After months of personal study, hearing from experts, soul searching and prayer, President Bush gave his decision... Simply stated, President Bush has authorized taxpayer funding for research on around 60 known stem cell "lines" created from embryos that were destroyed prior to his decision... Bush decided not to provide funding for research "that would sanction or encourage further destruction of human embryos..." Most pro-life leaders, though sympathetic with the President's dilemma, have publicly denounced the decision upon reflection. But the President did draw a line, and made pledges consistent with his conscience and maturity as a Christian. We must pray he will hold the line as forces in the scientific and business communities unleash new drives to persuade him to further compromise...

An... important question remains: "If research proves that embryonic stem cells can be used to cure otherwise incurable devastating diseases, THEN WHAT?" The obvious answer is: "Then we will acquire or create and destroy however many human embryos are necessary to satisfy the immense demand for cures that can be effected through the use of their stem cells." By funding such research, the United States has effectively decided, in advance, that if it works, it will further abandon God's laws in order to profit from "successful" research...

God is a God of grace and mercy. His patience is great. But we have shed oceans of innocent blood and are creating ever-new ways to shed even more. Even Thomas Jefferson, though unorthodox, was rightly anguished when he wrote, "I tremble for my nation when I reflect that God is just, and that His justice cannot sleep forever."
