Just rambling on

nt Now that I'm back and have tried my best to get life back to normal, I can finally think enough to blog a bit.
I had thrown myself into an online book, called "The Pivot of Civilization" by Margaret Sanger, you can find it
here. But I recently discovered it's not the kind of book I agree with.
Since i'm pro life and take the Catholic stance on that. I recently wrote how I thought it might be a good book but it was my mistake, I am not fammiliar with the name Margaret Sanger, so when I saw this online book recommendation, I assumed it was a pro life book.
I spent a few days in Melbourne, rushing around and taking care of the last of my immigration appointments.
I had my interview for an American visa in Sydney Australia a while ago, thanks to those who wished us well and prayed. I was told that I would be accepted once I hand in some final documents that had been expired due to unexpected delays I went through, I'll be sure to celebrate once it's in my hand though. It may have taken longer than Jonathan and I first expected but it's certainly been in Gods hands.
On Sunday our priest spoke about stem cell research. The argument is enough to give me a headache but I'm reading more about it, and I must say it's better than reading Margaret Sanger.
That's all my updates, have a great week.

Awesome about the visa my friend :)

online books, not sure if i'd like that. I like you like to get nice in comfortable usually in my bed and read, right before I doze off.

Glad you're back! :)

It was probably all the good wishes that propelled you across the finish line with the Visa.

Congratulations.

hey Carmel darling!

I owe you an email & I apologise for the delay!
You have been in my daily prayers though (as has J), so know that you are much loved and entrusted to St. Joseph!


Margaret Sanger is actually a huge pro-abortion & pro-contraception activist who started Planned Parenthood!!!

She was basically an semi-evil nutcase who was in favour of eugenics and the murdering of all handicapped babies.

Reading her book might be interesting in giving an insight into the horrendous way of thinking of the woman who started the biggest abortion organization in the world!

Stem cells are pretty confusing!

The way I think about them is like this:


There are 2 ways of getting stem cells:


1. by fertilising a woman's egg with a man's sperm in a dish. You then get an embryo (a new human life). in the very early stages (e.g. up to 16 days of life) the cells are 'stem cells' and have the potential to develop into any other type of cell in the body. They aren't specialised.
So what scientists do is to take these cells from that human embryo to experiment on.

this is BAD because it involves the creation and destruction of a new life.


2. You can also get stem cells from adults! Every single person in the world has stem cells in their bone marrow & blood. These can ALSO be taken and used to experiment on.

This is GOOD and no moral problem. It is like donating blood or an organ.


so stem cells from 2 sources...one is morally horrendous, other is morally acceptable.

Also, studies show that adult stem cells actually work better than embryonic stem cells!

God Bless!

I have recently become pro-life. Before I used to believe in circumstances abortion was right. I guess there are some that are unavoidable, but I know now if I was to ever get one I wouldn't be able to live with the guilt.
