Social Justice Movement Ought to Recognize Human Rights for Unborn Children

The modern social justice movement can be described as a loose union of movements that oppose institutionalized injustice in various forms—racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, and many more. It’s seen as a single movement because all forms of oppression share certain characteristics: most importantly, that they are systems of injus…

FDA Appears Set to Approve Creating Human Embryos With Three Parents

An experimental technique for creating embryos with three biological parents appears to be moving toward an okay from the FDA. Ostensibly to prevent mitochondrial disease, the experiment would use one genetically modified egg (with the nucleus from another egg), and sperm to create a new human life via IVF. Now, an FDA committee is holding hearing…

Scientist Claims New Reprogramming Technique Works in Human Cells, May Lead to Cloning

After the ground-breaking news last week that Japanese scientists were able reprogram adult cells to embryonic-like cells in mice by simply bathing them in weak acid, the next step was to try this with human cells.

Irony: Planned Parenthood Tweets About All Human Beings Deserving Freedom

Sometimes irony displays itself with pictures that have a subtext of 55 million words. On Monday, Planned Parenthood tweeted this picture: It seems that the words in this tweet would be reasons not to stand with Planned Parenthood.

This event (apart from everything else it entails) provides a number of insights about human life and dignity. 1. Each of us was once an unborn child.

Even “Pro-Choice” Philosophers Admit: Human Life Begins at Fertilization

I have written before on how we know the unborn are persons from fertilization. But now I’d like to address how we know the unborn are biological members of our species from fertilization. This is a basic, undeniable fact of science and yet I still encounter many people who deny this reality. Before you can […]…

Creation of Human Embryos With Three Parents Facing Massive Opposition

To stop the latest of the Brave New World movements, we need a cacophony of resistance. Luckily, it is not just pro-lifers that are sounding the alarm about three-parent IVF, also called mitochondrial replacement (MR).

People from all sides are voicing their concerns about the ethics and safety of this technique where a donor egg’s nucleus is removed and replaced with the nucleus of a woman with mitochondrial disease. That genetically-engineered egg is then fertilized with sperm creating an embryo that has genetic material from three persons, the mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) from the donor, and nuclear DNA contributed by the parents.

Forced Abortions in China: The Worst Human Rights Abuse in the World

Last week the news broke of yet another forced abortion in China. In an interview with the UK’s Sky News, Liu Xinwen and her husband Zhou Guoquing revealed that their home was invaded by 20 officials from the Shandong Family Planning Committee who held down Mr. Zhou while his wife was pulled from her bed and taken to a hospital where she was forcibly aborted at six months of pregnancy.

In light of the recent study indicating the safety concerns with 3-parent IVF in animal studies–and given the pronounced ethical concerns–the Center for Bioethics and Culture asked me to flesh out my views about the contentious biotechnology. I do so in “Now is the Time to Stop Three-Parent IVF:”
