Adopting Non-Embryonic Children is Selfish

by Michael Gregory Steele and Herman B. Hayes

If there’s one thing that last week’s Presidential stem cell veto has taught us it’s that embryos can be saved from their hellish frozen existence and raised as children of God. These “snowflake children” played a very important role during President Bush’s press conference last week as they stood behind him and put a human face to the reality of embryonic mass murder (well several tiny human faces to be precise).

I’ve been thinking a lot the past few days about the parents who made the choice to adopt these embryos and raise them as their own. I’ve also thought about those precious children who were brought up specifically to be advocates for embryonic rights. The parents here were given a choice between adopting a living breathing child and adopting an embryo frozen in state. These parents realized that giving some child who has already had the privilege of being born a better life is not as important as giving birth to a child who can help make a political point. These parents are heroes.

The truth of the matter is, if you are unable to conceive naturally, this is a clear message from God that your bloodline is far too tainted to be carried on. Think of this as a Godly equivalent of natural selection (I call it “intelligent selection”) with the intelligent selector (God) choosing who should and shouldn’t have children. Of course, if you trust in the wisdom of the intelligent selector (and you should unless you like burning in Hell) this eliminates the possibility of in vitro fertilization.

So if you find yourself in such a situation, you’re left only with the choice of adoption.

When making the decision to adopt an already born child or a frozen pre-born almost child you need to think of it in terms of potential. Not just potential for life, but potential for the advancement of the pro-life cause. If you adopt a non-Snowflake child and he/she makes a drawing of petrified embryos fearing for their very lives it might find its way on your fridge but I seriously doubt Senator Brownback would be talking about it on the floor of the Senate.

Snowflake children are the only kids with the authority to make the case for life.


So, when going through that adoption process, try making a choice that pleases the Lord for once in your life and adopt an embryo. There’s a reason you were made fruitless by the Almighty – you angered Him. Don’t make Him even more enraged by being so selfish as to miss the opportunity to advance the pro-life cause.

I also think that if there were more frozen embryos in the Middle East, there would be less bombing. Senator Brownback would help so much with that problem, too, and it would get resolved, see? So that's a sign from God, too.

blue gal: Look, this stem cell debate is and always has been about potential. The potential for those stem cells to become babies and then the potential for those babies to become Christian.

There's almost no potential for those fully formed America hating jihadists in the Middle East to become Christians. This is why their lives are less important than those embryonic children.

I've been thinking seriously about adopting one of these embryos but I've had a difficult time keeping the sea monkeys alive in my aquarium much less a frozen embryo. Do they come with a user guide?

fletch - I think the problem is that the embryos need a different kind of aquarium, but I wouldn't try the sea monkey's there - it may not work exactly as planned :)

Do you realize how horrible this is? First of all, there are so many people with different backgrounds and individual cases and personalities that cannot conceive naturally. For this might be true, but making this blanket statement is inaccurate. I have faith in God, and His wisdom is far beyond ours. We have no right to put words in His mouth with statements like this. Just because one case had this reasoning behind doesn't mean they all do. God doesn't have a generalized policy/procedures template laying out in His office somewhere.

Secondly, you probably don't even come close to realizing how insensitive it is. As someone who has infertility problems and has faith in God, the first question one of the biggest questions I ask myself is "Am I not worthy enough to parent a child naturally?" Maybe I'm not, that question hasn't been answered yet, but, like I said, every case is different. Saying that someone's bloodline is tainted and if they don't believe that they'll go to Hell, is the same as saying they aren't good enough and that people who can are good enough somehow. It's worse still because their "bloodline" is something they can't control. And, like I said before, you don't know if it's true, because you're not God.

I do want to say though, that the idea of adopting embryos still appeals to me, but not for your reasons. How would you feel if you were raised as a political statement?

I agree with the above comment. I really do appreciate the support that this blog offers Bush and his campaign for frozen embryos, but I also believe that your words would be more powerful with a less judgmental attitude. If you've named yourselves "Conservatives for American Values" perhaps you should use the Value of Humility and Graciousness in your posts to further the Kingdom of God. I've found that phrases like "burning in Hell" are not effective for turning the hearts of the lost to Christ. It is God's love, mercy, grace, and holiness that prompts us to obey Him, not the fear of Hell.
Also, you speak of "tainted bloodlines". Perhaps you have not realized that you are implying that God had a tainted bloodline, because His Son, Christ did not have children, when He walked on earth among men. God blesses us with children when it is in His will to do so, and withholds children when He sees fit. The apostle Paul did not have children, not because God was cursing him but because He had a plan for Paul to serve him in a different way. Children are a blessing, but the lack of children is not necessarily a curse, rather a blessing in disguise, for instance, an infertile couple then has the chance to give life to an unborn embryo. An immense blessing, really.
Thank you for speaking out for the lives of those 400,000+ frozen embryos that deserve a voice and a chance to live. God bless your blog, and may he use your words to futher His kingdom.

Hey, you two Anonymous users above me: this blog is SATIRE! Hello! Do you know what satire is?

According to Merriam-Webster Online, it's: 1 : a literary work holding up human vices and follies to ridicule or scorn
2 : trenchant wit, irony, or sarcasm used to expose and discredit vice or folly

So, in conclusion, he's NOT SERIOUS, you morons!!!! He basically means the OPPOSITE of what he wrote. Maybe your parents ignored God's warnings about their bloodlines...
