Keep embryo-destroying research companies out of Virginia

By: Jeff Caruso

Between 2004 and 2010, five new state research programs have been created. Each of the five includes a provision making it clear that no company can benefit from the program if it performs research on embryonic stem cells or aborted fetuses within Virginia’s borders.

However, the biotech industry has recently been engaged in an aggressive two-fold push: (1) for more lucrative state financial incentives, and (2) against restrictions supported by pro-life advocates on incentive-seeking companies that conduct life-destroying research. Given this activity, a state policy is needed more than ever to push back on behalf of Virginia taxpayers, so that we are not forced to finance entities that conduct unethical, immoral, and destructive research.

Ask the Governor to propose policies to ensure that, across all state programs, Virginia consistently tells companies they are not welcome if they bring research that requires human lives to be destroyed to our Commonwealth.

Thank you for advocating for the sanctity of human life.

  1. What does it mean so say that GOD is LOVE?

    To answer this question, let us consider some fundamental truths about the nature of the HOLY TRINITY.

    First, THE HOLY TRINITY is in a predominant or a primary aspect, a LIFE OF PURE MUTUAL INTER-RELATIONSHIP between the persons of GOD THE FATHER, GOD THE SON, and GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT. A primary aspect of the HOLY TRINITY is the mutual inter-relationships from among and within the THREE DIVINE PERSONS.

    Second, a primary aspect of the above life of mutual interpersonal relationship is that it is one of PURE LOVE, both given in an infinity enjoyed manner, and received in an infinity enjoyed manner.

    However, the DIVINE NATURE has an existence that is one with its BEING. This BEING, or the I AM THAT I AM, is precisely and absolutely, perfect, unbounded LOVE and then so IMHO, in an absolutely, perfect, and unbounded variety of forms: For what ultimate reality should not also be unboundedly, existentially rich, complete, and full.

    We can use common notions that GOD is made out of LOVE, but such an intellectually immature notion would imply that GOD is constructed out of something. Rather than have a material composition whether the material is physical or spiritual, the DIVINE ESSENCE OR BEING IS ITS OWN EXISTENCE AND THE DIVINE CHARACTERISTICS ARE THE SAME REALITY AS THE DIVINE NATURE, ESSENSE, OR BEING.

    Even if the entire supply of Consecrated Sacred Hosts and Wine as the body and blood of Our Lord Jesus was somehow annihilated such as by an unfortuitous nuclear fusion ignition of Earth’s oceans such as by a special form of underwater nuclear explosion that would concentrate the nuclear blast energy by up to 6 orders of magnitude over a traditional spherically symmetrically exploding nuke, thus vaporizing the entire planet, the DIVINE NATURE would continue to exist utterly unharmed or immutably un-corrupted.

    We sometimes like to box GOD in by thinking and saying how HE should be, and the truth is that GOD is LOVE that clearly states in the Old Testament that I AM THAT I AM.

    This “I AM THAT I AM” leads us to contemplate the HOLY TRINITY as deeply as we have been allowed or permitted by GOD to understand HIM, but I can assure the reader, that GOD goes unlimitedly far beyond this in terms of what is possible to abstractly know about HIM. It is time that all clergyman, laity, religious, scientists, health care professionals, business persons, policy makers, and the rest of us to more fully trust in DIVINE PROVIDENCE and except that a human embryo is a complete person and must never be destroyed for any purpose. After all, this “I AM THAT I AM” known as DIVINE LOVE loves each embryo that comes into being.

    As a physicist who works in the applied theoretical physics discipline of interstellar propulsion technologies and who has a reference book on this subject currently being edited by a professional editor services firm in Canada, and who has many additional textbooks on the subject in the planning stages, my arcane scientific acumen has not blinded me to the existence of the nature of GOD and the need for a reverential respect for the sanctity of all human life, but has enabled me to see the potential for essentially unlimited growth of the human population as we reach out into the vast cosmos. We as human persons can profoundly alter the course of future cosmic history by promoting what is best of our species, the ability to procreate, or if decidedly single as I am, or as a consecrated religious, consecrated virgin, or clergyman, support the Church Teaching that artificial contraception is morally wrong, as is the destruction of human embryos and fetuses, even in cases of rape or incest. A child is a child from the moment of conception.
