I have to wonder if we stop supporting everything out there because of this? Most research today will include embryonic cells. Now some of these can certainly be obtained without the death of an innocent fetus, but most won’t be for sure. This is one reason I could not continue by interest and studies in genetics many years ago.
But what are we to do? I would never deny a person with the illness my support. I can’t control every single thing out there, especially how my donations may be used by any organization. Do I just trust that God will know my intentions are pure and donate anyway?
I have become perplexed in terms of what Christians can actually support, and in how many ways, based on the apparently intertwined nature of everything. If you support March of Dimes you are supporting abortion and stem cell research. If you donate to groups looking for cures of ALS, MS, Lupus and so on, you will eventually be supporting some aspect of research that is directly in opposition to the Church. Embryonic research is in almost everything.
What should we do about these other causes? Should be only support the Church and nothing else at all?
