New! Stop fretting about 3-parent embryos and get ready for "multiplex parenting"

Michael Cook
The controversy over three-parent embryos could soon be old hat. Writing in one of the world's leading journals, one of Britain's best-known bioethicists has outlined a strategy for creating children with four or more genetic parents. He calls it "multiplex parenting".

New! Barcoding embryos

Michael Cook
Barcoding embryos another version of the number tattooed on the forearm of the Polish shopkeeper. Embryos, children actually, are to be branded like cattle and assigned numbers instead of names. Loving parents give a gestating child a name, not a barcode. Despite all the promotional photos of glowing mums and gurgling babies, IVF is becoming a lot less like love and a lot more like manufacturing.

New! Surrogate Parenting is Wrong

Judie Brown
Women selling their bodies as vessels has become an increasingly common commodity in today's society. But the moral implications are far - reaching, and the emotional tolls are becoming visible. When science trumps God's plan, and aims to override His will, calamity is sure to result.

E. Christian Brugger
Pro-lifers are no strangers to the euphemistic tactics of abortion activists. But the new depths to which the FDA has sunk with its recent approval will test their patience. The secret that the Ella establishment doesn't want you to know is this: from a pharmacological perspective, Ella is not an emergency contraceptive (EC). It is an abortion drug.

The Silent Screams of the Children Nobody Hears

Judie Brown
The subject of fetal pain, and the manner in which political operatives within the pro-life movement have handled it, have always been a source of interest and sorrow for me. Now is the perfect time to examine the so-called "fetal pain" proposition from a perspective that is not often discussed - the perspective of the preborn child.

Cloning, Stem Cell Research and Some Historic Parallels

C. Ward Kischer
Too many scientists have called for "therapeutic" cloning, and for use of the "spare" embryos, without thinking through the several consequences, some of which could be devastating. For example, Humpherys, et al., have shown in mice that cloning by nuclear transfer is so inefficient that most clones die. Those that survive often display growth abnormalities. They also examined the embryonic stem cells and found their genome to be "extremely unstable".
