A fertility clinic in Texas takes dementia to a new level with its push for "designer babies."
A Texas fertility clinic now promoting its plan to "design" babies for customers is moving society another step down the road toward full-blown eugenics in the United States, where there would be certain categories of lives that simply would be valueless, according to a spokesman for an organization of physicians.
"I hope we have the gumption to have laws passed that will prohibit this," Dr. Gene Rudd, the associate executive director for the Christian Medical Association, told WND. "But one we've gone so far, how can you justify not going just a little bit further … down that ethical abyss." He was directing his comments to an announcement by a Texas fertility clinic that it would match sperm and egg donors to meet criteria for babies demanded by customers – an entirely new concept in "Have it your way," Rudd said.
The association's statement on the issue said the clinic's ethics were seriously lacking because it was "grading babies like meat in a supermarket."
The proposal has been made by the Abraham Center of Life in Texas, an in-vitro fertilization clinic that said the donors would be screened and confirmed so that the features parents desire are present in a baby.
"This designer baby scheme crosses ethical and moral boundaries by turning babies into commodities," said Dr. David Stevens, CEO of the 17,000-member CMA. "By stressing the educational level of sperm and egg donors, this center is preying on parents who have fallen victim
to the false notion that babies are a status symbol, and that intelligence, race or appearance are somehow measures of worth.
Modern day liberalism at its absolute worst. Sick. Just sick.
