Killing People is a Big Deal, No Matter the Age or Stage

Let's just avoid the use of the word 'embryo' here for a second while we talk about what the House has approved. Proponents of this life-ending research hinge their arguments on the size of the person's life, arguing that it's not really any bigger than a pinhead, so what's the big deal? The big deal is, these are people and size and age are irrelevant factors to the value of human life. Human dignity is not based upon whether a person looks like a person, but whether they are genetically a human being. The House has approved federal funding for research that destroys human life. Can it get much worse than this?

A good cross-link would be Joe Carter's post on Personhood vs. Human Being.
