Welcome to the 3rd Carnival of Life!
We've got lots of great links so let's get started...
Papijoe at Marlowe's Shade
writes about fetal farming
- which could be the next step in the embryonic stem cell research debate.I
have linked to an article by the USCCB
about the politics behind cloning language and how that can lead to the fetal farming described in Papijoe's post.
Deborah at Choose Life
wonders what our actions toward the most vulnerable and our clear lack of concern says about us, our society and our concern for our own humanity, What does this say about us?
Patterico at Patterico's Pontifications exposes bias in an LA Times
story about the brief filed by Bush in support of a federal ban on partial-birth abortion. It seems the bias comes out more often than not in what the reporters fail to mention than in what they say.
Arthur at Angry Twins
tells the story of a friend's unexpected pregnancy and what a gift it turned out to be for all involved in Choosing Life: A Mother's Greatest Choice
Christina at Confessions of a Hot Carmel Sundae
wonders "If we refuse to consider abortion, but we contracept to avoid having children, can we really claim that our pro-life beliefs make any difference in our lives?" in Life Only Begins in the Womb
Jivin J at JivinJehoshaphat
presents Peter Singer: "Being human doesn't matter"
. Singer gives us strawmen and ad hominen attacks and Jivin J masterly exposes the fraud.
Naaman at Naaman the Ex-Leper
has written a piece about Life from the Viewpoint of Infertility
, showcasing the lessons a woman learned about life from IVF treatments.Hyscience
points out that Late abortion referrals are legal
. If a man injures the mother and the "fetus" dies, the man has killed an unborn child - according to the law. Confused? So is the law. In both, a human being has been "killed," but the laws of the land proclaim that only one of the two are guilty of murder.

Human life is sacred and inviolable at every moment of existence, including the initial phase which precedes birth. All human beings, from their mothers' womb, belong to God who searches them and knows them, who forms them and knits them together with his own hands, who gazes on them when they are tiny shapeless embryos and already sees in them the adults of tomorrow whose days are numbered and whose vocation is even now written in the "book of life" Evangelium Vitae JPII #61
