Church of Scotland backs use of human embryos
A CHURCH of Scotland committee has backed using human embryos for stem cell research in some circumstances.

The Kirk's Society, Religion and Technology Project decided it was ethical to use embryos created during IVF treatment if they were under 14 days old.

In the first major report in a decade from the church on the subject of embryo research, and the first on the science of stem cell treatment, project members said that embryos "may be used in medical research with a view to eventual treatments involving stem cells".

Leading experts in medical ethics have described the stance as "brave", but the report, which goes before the General Assembly next month, has already attracted criticism from the Roman Catholic Church, which said the Kirk was "starting down a dangerous path" by stating that the end justifies the means. ...

Apparently, there's this huge difference between going out of your way to create babies to experiment on, but it's fine if the babies are 'surplus' or unwanted.

Lets take the logic of that one to it's logical conclusion, shall we?

It's not OK to kill your newborn in the name of science if you want it, but if you already have a few, and you're not going to be needing this latest one, it's fine to slice and dice.

It seems to me that being unwanted is possibly the biggest 'sin' in the world today.

Well here is some of this Liberal churches notes.

1]"The report has been prepared by an ecumenical working group of the Church and Society Council and will go before this year’s Assembly."

"Ecumenical"???? - whether this means other denominations, or reaching out to "experts" outside the Church I don't know. Either way it sounds dubious.

2]"The working group, which included stem cell scientists, doctors, ethicists and theologians, has examined both the scientific data and the ethical implications of current and future adult and embryo stem cell research, including the use of cloned embryos"

I wonder if they were all Christians. Come to think of it were "any" Christians.??

3]"The theological question of when a human life begins is foundational to discussing stem cell research."

Duh - Before we start, Anybody know when life begins.?
Duh - My mate says life begins at 40.?
Crucial question Gentlemen.

4]"The report examined the theological implications of various stages, and concluded that “embryo research might be permitted up to 14 days,"

Well thats it folks conception does not necessary "conceive" life.

I understand a 9 year old orang outang called Clyde, is helping this commitee with the more complex questions.

Ah, I'll let our British friends really go into detail on this one. I did notice even years ago, listening to the BBC on the shortwave, that the state churches of Great Britain, were liberal and unChristian, and I may have to say that for the Northern Irish one, too.

It honors God to be a Noncomformist in Great Britain, in more ways than one.
