What These Tests Tell Us About Ourselves
This test tells us as a lot… about ourselves. From the Chuck Colson Center of Christian Worldview, I’m John Stonestreet.
Last week I told you the bad news about a new test that provides an easier, non-invasive way to diagnose and eliminate Downs syndrome in utero. But as Andrew Pollack tells us in the New York Times, the test can also determine who the father of the child is as early as the 8th or 9th week of pregnancy.
Pollack says this can provide an answer to what can be “an uncomfortable question… in today's world... by mothers who had more than one male partner at the time they became pregnant.” And this is helpful, he continues because, “the test results might allow women to terminate a pregnancy if the preferred man is not the father — or to continue it if he is.”
Wow. Now babies should be executed not just because of an inconvenient disease but because their father is not the “preferred man”? As Eric Metaxas said on Breakpoint, gives new meaning to the sins of the father being visited on the children. God help us. For thePointRadio.org, I’m John Stonestreet.
