Jack Sisson's Life Ethics Blog

We must find new ways through many ethical issues, especially regarding bioethics, medical ethics, and criminal justice. Jack Sisson's 'Life Ethics' blog focuses on numerous areas of concern, including the philosophical and ethical dilemmas surrounding stem-cell research, abortion, medical research, and health care.

After I read this article I was reminded of a joke my priest told me when I was growing up. It went something like this:

A scientist goes up to God and says, "Hey God, listen. We don't need you any more. We can create life from nothing, bring the dead back to life and do anything you can do. "Oh really?" says God. "Yes sir" replies the scientist as he furthers his argument, "and while I don't mean to sound arrogant our technology has progressed far enough we can most likely make a human being from nothing faster than you." God shrugs and says, "Ok. Let's a have a human making contest...GO!". God turns as the scientist scoops a bunch of dirt into a tray and says, "Hey wait a minute--get your own dirt."

What I still am failing to understand from the liberals is this: you want to end the lives of maybe-babies to save yourselves. That hardly seems fair. Are we as a society so infatuated with ourselves that we overlook that we too have to die? That future generations will surpass us in every way? How much more arrogant can we be? No one wants to die. Of course not. We have our friends...our families...our dogs...our beloved baseball teams. But that's the problem with living--eventually you have to stop doing it. I'm not saying it's fair but we're in a progression here and collectively we are infinitely small in the whole scheme of things. That's why we have babies in the first place--to pass "ourselves" along; not literally to live forever.
