Campus centers for the study of good things

Our friend Patrick Deneen gets some love in this WSJ piece describing the movement best exemplified by Robert George’s Madison Center and the unjustly overlooked Ashbrook Center. The article also points to this interesting new source of funding and inspiration.

Joe, just wanted to let you know (since no one else has commented) that this was a very interesting - and hope-inducing - post. Thanks.

’But that does not mean the stem cell debate is about when human life begins. It is a simple and uncontroversial biological fact that a human life begins when an embryo is created. That embryo is human, and it is alive; its human life will last until its death, whether that comes days after conception or many decades later surrounded by children and grandchildren.’

And people on this site attempted to dilute my very same argument on when human life begins by claiming I based my assertions on religion only or claimed that my statements were to be looked askew on due to possible religious assumptions.

Science is clear, human life begins at conception.

The debate is and always has been on whether we deem that new human life the right to live or not.

Roe v. Wade emphatically stated no, we do not.

Proponents of embryonic stem cell research emphatically state no, we do not.

Yet, the science is clear, we all begin with conception and it is good that some religions agree with basic human embryology.

It is sad that even educated doctors and scientists forget their basics.

Formatted version ...

Well, it appears my comments are on the wrong thread. Sorry.
