These reflections are taken from the book “Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day” by Fr. Frank Pavone which is available for purchase at: ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org
“Right from fertilization is begun the adventure of a human life” (Donum Vitae, n.1).
Reflection: Never has there been a more unscientific debate than the one about embryonic stem cell research. There is no disease that embryonic stem cells have been able to treat. Science is based on evidence. If there is no evidence that embryonic stem cells can help, why do people continue to call for the killing of embryos in order to harvest those cells?
Prayer: Lord, I pray for all researchers and scientists, that their moral character may grow as strong as their technical knowledge. Amen.
