This reflection is taken from my book Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day, which is available for purchase at: ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org
“For You created all things; by Your will they were created” (Revelation 4:11).
Reflection: Cloning advocates make a misleading distinction between “reproductive” cloning — that is, actually bringing clones to birth — and “therapeutic cloning” — that is, using the clone’s cells, but killing the clone before he or she is born. In reality, all cloning is reproductive, because the unborn clone is human, and no cloning is therapeutic, because no medical benefit has been demonstrated.
Prayer: Father, you alone can create human life, and you have created it for yourself. Preserve us from the temptation of trying to do what you alone can do. Amen.
