Since Rebecca Taylor and I had such a good time chatting with each other last month, we decided to try it again…and possibly make it a regular series!

biotalk1.jpgIntroducing BioTalk, where Rebecca and I — and possibly other guests in the future?? — will talk about all things bioethics, but especially issues related to human biotechnology or those “pro-life 2.0-3.0” issues we talked about last month — from a Catholic perspective.

Unfortunately, these issues don’t always get a lot of attention from pro-lifers. Obviously, after almost 40 years and over 50 million murdered unborn children, abortion remains our highest pro-life priority. But if we don’t start talking about these other issues now and, more importantly, doing something about them, they’re going to get just as out of hand as abortion is today. In fact, we already have an out of control, unregulated fertility industry that, while it’s aim is to foster new life, results in significantly more lives lost, destroyed or ‘frozen in time’ than actually living outside the womb.

In this first episode, we’re talking about prenatal genetic testing. A few quick takes:

1. Prenatal genetic testing is not unethical or immoral in and of itself.
2. Death is not medicine. Some people actually maintain that prenatal genetic testing along with abortion “cures” or “treats” genetic disease. This is absurd.
3. Eugenic abortion sends the message to those of us who live with disabilities and genetic diseases that our lives are not worth living and we’d be better off dead.
4. Another unethical use of prenatal gene testing: “designer babies”. Sure, it sounds far-fetched, but we’re already we’re seeing an  for couples to be able to choose the sex of their child.

Check it out (*Note* Rebecca and I and I are both total amateurs at this, so please excuse the less than high quality production and rough cuts throughout. Hopefully these things will improve the more we do it!):

  1. Anti-Choicers are DOMESTIC TERRORISTS who interfere in Women’s civil rights. Women are sentient beings who should not have their lives thrown under the bus because fanatics worship the egg/zygote/embryo /fetus. Since they harassment those seeking medical assistance, just as America would not tolerate interference going to a blood bank by Jehovah Witness so too must we outlaw these people like yourselves. Domestic terrorists deserve harsh solitary confinement in Federal Prison, and harsh fines. Religious groups that support terror need investigation by Homeland Security and the IRS. All anti aborts should be subjected to round up and imprisonment by the National Guard. Just as we would do against those who would overthrow and protest against the civil rights movement. Even the Alveda Kings must go behind bars if she wants to side with terrorist so whose political goals vis a visit African Americans if honest would be to bring Jim Crow back to the United States.

    1. Angry much P. McCoy? Most pro-lifers (or as you call us, “Anti-Choicers”) are very peaceful individuals who persist in prayer for not only the baby, but the mother as well. It’s not that we worship the baby, but we truly want what is best for the woman, and abortion is never the answer. It is disguised as the easy way out, but all too often, brings much more intense pain for the mother for years afterwards.

      Pro-lifers don’t terrorize women and if they do, then they are wrong. Terror is never the solution.

      1. For you to decide e what is best for a stranger is to the say the least pretentious. Angry I am indeed. Pls read what I said, blocking and obstructing people women not fetuses from obtaining medical services is designed de facto an act of terror that can no longer be tolerated. In short cease and desist the harassment. As the saying says: against abortion DON’T HAVE ONE.
