Is the Brave New World Inevitable?

I find their editorial views wishy-washy at times, but in their October issue, Christianity Today has a great overview of the stem cell debate. It's a terrific guide for Christians perplexed by the stem cell media blitz. It presents a wide range of perspectives. I particularly liked this quote from Joni Eareckson Tada:

Joni Eareckson Tada, left a quadriplegic by a diving injury 38 years ago, is frustrated by what she sees as scientific hype. "The media have played out the human embryo as the holy grail of stem-cell research," Tada, who founded the Joni and Friends ministry in 1979, tells CT. "The biotech industry, linked with venture capitalists, would have us believe that an embryo is not a human being—it's just a mindless clump of cells not worthy of protection or legal rights. And we bought into it."

By taking the time to read it, you'll be better informed than 90% of the adult population.
