This reflection is taken from my book Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day, which is available for purchase at: ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org.
“All things were created through him and for him” (Colossians 1:16).
Reflection: Cloning is an assault on human dignity and a denial of God’s purpose for human life. Cloning is not about having carbon copies of people walking around. It’s about starting new lives in order to harvest cells for the purported benefit of the person who is genetically identical. In the process, of course, the embryo would be killed.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, we were not created to be killed, harvested, or manipulated for some other purpose. We were created through you and for you. May we rejoice in that truth and oppose whatever contradicts it. Amen.
