Many scientists and lawmakers are wanting to legalize and fund stem-cell research on human fetuses. The reasoning is that these unborn babies can help save the lives of people with Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.
They justify this non-voluntary, sacrificial act by unborn babies by saying they are less of a human than someone fully formed and now suffering from a disease.
How is this logic any different than the logic supporting slavery? Where one group of people were considered less human than another group and they were used to make their lives easier. The big distinction is that slaves had to live daily through the abuse, degradation and humiliation, until they were finally liberated. These second-class citizen babies, however, are denied life, as it is sacrificed to give someone else a better quality of life.
