Pregnant with a Neanderthal

A baby with a Neanderthal? Huh? . For the Chuck Colson Center for Christian Worldview, I’m John Stonestreet with The Point.

Harvard Medical professor George Church thinks he can reconstruct the genetic information of the now extinct Neanderthals, inject the genes into human embryonic stem cells, and implant the resulting embryo into a female volunteer willing to carry the child to term.

In the extremely unlikely event this project gets the green light from a lab, overcomes legal challenges, clears medical hurdles, and succeeds in producing a viable baby, the greatest problem remains: what is the moral status of a part-Neanderthal child? Will it be considered human by society and under the law? And what will the child think of our scientific hubris?

These worldview questions, if not forced by this crazy experiment will be with other technologies like designer babies — which are very real possibilities. The challenges to human dignity go beyond abortion. If we don’t address them now, Neanderthals and human dignity could share a common fate. I’m John Stonestreet.

    We know it is human nature to devalue the
    things we receive for free. Many hand tools are automatic and are generally powered by electricity.
    It’s utilized for everything from sheds, residences and decks to more modest occupations, for example cutting the structure wood for a
    solid walk or the parts for parking space racks.

    Furniture companies have dozens of nail guns in their wood shops as a
    result of how great they succeed. That way they will have more chances of landing
    a job and of moving forward to higher career goals.
    I prefer to use particle board because it is less
    expensive than plywood and works just as well.

    We know it is human nature to devalue the things we receive for free.

    Being able to work with a wide range of clamps at your fingertips is not
    hard to do because they are low-priced and easily available.
    As a apprentice carpenter, you have the opportunity of four years
    with developing and construction businesses, subcontractors, group teaching organizations,
    self employment or government departments.
