Adopted for Life-Chapter 4

  • "The galloping forward of such technologies means that we may one day see a world in which only Christians have Down syndrome babies in their strollers, only Christians have bald little girls fighting through chemotherapy, only Christians have little boys in 'husky' size paints struggling against childhood obesity. What an impoverished world--for all of us--that will be."

We are faced with a world in which reproductive freedom is combined with advancing technologies and may lead to designer children. The "good" children will be kept and the genetically undesirable will be killed. This may be yet another attempt at making ourselves perfect through good works, in this case genetic manipulation. Pray that this does not happen.

Ecclesiastes 7:13 "Consider the work of God: who can make straight what he has made crooked?"
