Just when you think you’ve heard everything, another atrocity occurs to advance the assault on human life even further.
As reported in LifeNews.com, the Empire State Stem Cell Board in New York has approved a plan which would use taxpayer dollars to pay women who allow their human eggs to be extracted for research purposes. The research, of course, is human cloning and embryonic stem cell research.
The board authorized up to $10,000 per retrieval to extract the eggs, with funding coming from a $600 million state tax dollar fund. New York is the first state to do this. Will there be more?
Women may be handsomely paid, but there is a bigger price to be paid in terms of their health. Egg retrieval carries significant risk, including organ failure, infertility and even death. It has long been feared that poor women will be induced to risk their health to meet economic needs.
A group called Hands Off Our Ovaries has formed to expose and oppose this plan. Women from a large spectrum belong to this organization. Education and action is needed — really fast before it comes to more states.
