Of Babes and Bio-Ethics


By Glenn Fairman

Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don't be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows. -- Luke 12:7


As we embark upon the Brave New World of government mandated health care, there is no denying that we will wrestle with the necessary debate on how to ration a finite commodity of resources in service to a near insatiable demand for care. As we travel down that hard road, decisions will have to be made on what constitutes "value for dollar" in the interest of the collective good. Moreover, upon whom should be lavished the largesse of extended life, and conversely, whose existence is deemed unworthy? In health care, perhaps no greater wedge issue will amplify the conflicting moral presuppositions that undergird the competing ethical obligations between religion and the secular project. What is at stake here is no less than: What is the value of a human life? Scissors-32x32.png


This frightening understanding of personhood has radical implications for medical ethics and social policy. It goes without saying that under color of this new worldview, human abortions through time of birth should not be morally objectionable.Scissors-32x32.png
