Smoke and mirrors to muddy the true issues.
How in the hell does George W. Bush know what goes on within the core of any of these families, or what life in their homes might entail?
Just for starters, in some women it takes four or more implants before they go full term. The mothers-to-be are often high-risk to begin with, and have numerous miscarriages. The "science" itself is by no means precise.
Statistics indicate that a significant percentage of children such as these "Snowflake" kids will be abused either verbally, mentally, emotionally, physically or sexually - or any combination thereof. The odds against them increase in direct correlation to the intensity level of the fervor of the parents' religious zeal and suppression of social vices.
Has anyone considered the long-term affects of this genetic engineering project under the guise of Christian soul-creating? It's painfully obvious King George has not; nor have the 256 sets of "parental units" responsible for this concoction of kids.
So, this very process is experimentation, and may be considered destruction of embryos.
What's going to happen in 20 years when one of these children needs a kidney transplant, but no one in the family is a suitable donor? Or, when there's an accident and identification is hampered because the DNA can't be matched?
What about grandparents who will never see or get to know their "grandchild?"
The human psyche cannot be fooled, even by filling up the mind and attempting to confuse it with a lifetime of convoluted misinterpretations of the Old Testament and the life of Christ. The child is going to know that something is missing from his or her life.
How about when the child turns 16 and tells the "parents" that he's gay, or she thinks praying to Jesus is just a bunch of "hooey?" Do the adoptive parents then get to return the child to the manufacturer, the original parent?
Since these adoptive parents are true Christians, at some point they're going to have to be honest with the children -- especially when their kid recognizes them on a documentary standing behind His Excellency. So how are they going to explain it when the "Snowflake" child inquires where her "real" parents are? Or he asks why neither set of parents wanted to help heal people and save lives by sharing stem cells?
Yep. King George XLIII paints a rosy picture while talkin' outta his ass, meanwhile all these evangelical white folks think it's gonna be all sweetness and heather from here on out, because they got themselves a Christian Petri dish baby.
We've explored this territory before, but it requires another reconnoiter. There are approximately 400,000 unused frozen zygotes around the U.S. in sperm banks. These are the property of the couples that placed them there. The zygotes are unused because these people have all the children they want.
These zygotes belong neither to the Government, nor to the facilities wherein they're kept.
However, King George XLIII has been attempting to dictate where and how these Petri dish minutiae should be put to use.
