Our Nation’s Grotesque Inconsistency on Babies and Life

By Kyle Butt, M.Div. - Posted at Apologetics Press

A gruesome story surfaced in the Summer of 2016. A 20-year-old college student named Emile Weaver gave birth to a baby in the sorority house of Delta Gamma Theta in New Concord, Ohio. She did not want the baby, so she cut the umbilical cord, threw the baby in a plastic trash bag, and put it in the garbage bin.1 Apparently, Weaver had tried drugs, alcohol, and numerous other substances and activities to kill the baby inutero, all to no avail.

An Absurd Fate: What Happens to Abandoned Embryos?

By Jennifer Lahl - Posted at The Public Discourse:
A recent embryo custody battle highlights the plight of the hundreds of thousands of frozen embryos in the United States today.I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: it almost always starts with an emotional story.

The latest situation is an embryo custody battle in Arizona. It highlights the depth of real human emotions connected to having children and building a family, and the ways in which human lives are affected by a justice system that seeks to do what is right in the midst of a true ethical mess. As with all embryo custody battles, there are never any winners. There are plenty of losers, though, and the embryos have the most to lose by far.

This case, of course, tugs at our heartstrings. In 2014, at the age of thirty-three, Ruby Torres was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer—a very aggressive breast cancer that has the lowest five-year survival rate of all breast cancers. Torres was engaged at the time of her dia…
