Taking a life to save a life, was President Bush’s short-hand debate description of embryonic stem-cell research, which while terribly simplified is not a bad summary of the immoral foundation of medical research depending on the death of fetuses.
“Prior to September 11, the defining moment of the Bush presidency had been the president’s decision to limit embryonic stem-cell research,” said Chuck Colson on his BreakPoint commentary Friday. “And while that issue has been overshadowed by the war in Iraq, it hasn’t gone away. In fact, it’s back with a vengeance, and that means it’s time for Christians to understand the facts and what’s at stake in the debate.”
Colson’s daily piece—four minutes on many radio stations and in print on his website—has been a good stop for a brief discussion of current issues from a Christian perspective for more than 10 years.
