Our throw away society has reached new heights of selfishness and new lows in ethics. For a long time now we have had a throw away mentality, but it is gaining momentum.
It started out with packaging and cheap plastic razors and pens, things that are used and then discarded, but it has graduated to people. Yes, we live in a society where we throw away people. Don’t believe me? Look up the abortion figures and weep. Every number on that list is a human life thrown away. Simply because a baby hasn’t been born yet doesn’t make it any less human.
As if that weren’t enough, we now create babies to extract stem cells from them so that older humans can live longer. I know the diseases are terrible, but how can it be right that a baby is killed so that another human can live?
The Bible says: “Greater love has no man than he lay down his life for his friend.” But that’s a reasoned choice. Babies are in no position to make that choice for themselves. How dare we make it for them.
Abortion, Stem cell research, Euthanasia. We are throwing people away!
