The Thread of Life…

The Thread of Life...

By Garret Hashimoto

Each of our lives can be thought of as a fragile thread suspending the experiences of our life journey from conception to death. A tiny thread that may be cut at any time in a dizzying number of ways. Regardless of where on our journey through life this thread is cut, death is the inevitable result. Beginning with the day of our birth, a monumental effort is put forth by those that came before us to ensure our safety and well-being. We are nourished and protected, loved and admired, the very embodiment of hope for the future.

Our family, our society, and our laws work hard to keep our thread intact following our birth in an effort to ensure we have every opportunity to pursue life, liberty, and happiness. As we continue our journey, we become more and more capable of assuming responsibility for our own thread. We are driven by an innate desire to survive in this world, to find our place and to make a contribution.

Great Breakthroughs in Adult Stem Cell Research

Chloe: “You saved my life”

At a National Press Club lunch in Washington D.C. yesterday  --  sponsored by the Bethesda Life Foundation which was founded by the president emeritus of the 16 million member Southern Baptist Convention Executive Committee, Dr. Morris Chapman   --  Dr. Jeong-Chan Ra, a prominent scientist and president of RNL Bio, introduced his new book, The Grace of Stem Cells: A Story of Science and Faith.

This writer had the privilege of sitting next to a couple of Dr. Ra’s patients, two outstanding young people, a brother and sister, who Dr. Ra has helped with the use of adult stem cells.  Their parents, both physicians in Long Beach, CA, found Dr. Ra through a doctor friend of theirs.  The bright and articulate young woman is mentioned in Dr. Ra’s new book in Case Study #8, title “Chloe Can Hear Again.”  At age 17, she had total deafness in left ear and hearing loss in right ear.  After receiving conventional treatment (steroids), she received three intravenous injections of stem cells over 15 days and had hearing restored to 50% in her left ear and 90% in her right ear.  At yesterday’s lunch, she seemed to have her full hearing restored.

Dems Welcome Muslims, Prohibit Christian Hospitality in Charlotte!



Of course this makes a great first topic: it gets people talking and thinking. I, personally, am strongly against it. Having said that, I can't imagine how hard it would be to be faced with the decision to keep a child if it would kill me. I don't think I can really put myself on those shoes but I would hope that I would trust God enough. Also, some candidates feel abortion is ok for not only maternal health, but in the case of rape or incest. Again, I can't put myself in those shoes but I do know there are plenty of people who want babies, who wouldn't see that child as a reminder of a painful experience. It is also not taking the feelings of the baby into consideration, just the woman. The women can voice their pain, these innocent lives can't. I don't feel having an abortion would stop any of the traumatic feelings in the woman though. In fact, I feel the abortion alone might have more trauma. As a Christian, I believe ALL life is important, no matter how it came about. God doesn't make mistakes. . Like the analogy or not, to me abortion is baby genocide. Zygote, fetus, whatever you call it~it's the beginning of a human and it's life should be considered precious. Even if someone could argue for early term abortions, I can not understand how partial-birth abortions are any different from medical murders. Legally, it's a matter of a few inches. Legally, only a few inches make the difference between homicide and partial birth abortion. From my readings, abortion workers have said to see babies moving away from the abortion instuments at 12 weeks.

Pro-Life label can be Very Inaccurate

It’s very confusing when someone says they’re pro-life. What exactly does that mean? Does that indicate the alleged pro-life person would vote to directly affect Roe vs. Wade (SC decision in 1973 that made it legal to abort in all months of pregnancy)? Heath Shuler (D/NC) claims he’s pro-life, but his Asheville office said in 2008 that he would not vote to rescind Roe vs. Wade.


It’s easy to go a step further. Would it be OK to abort if you thought something was seriously wrong with the baby? If you knew it had Down Syndrome? If it was conceived by incest? By rape? What if you thought you needed to get rid of it for another reason?

YouTube Pro-Life Statement Goes Viral!--More

The Mountain View Christian Center in Oakley, California began a video ministry which started with YouTube and has since been picked up by Tangle and Worth Reading. However, this latest video which makes a solid pro-life statement with facts that the world cannot dispute has gone viral, being seen in China, several Asian countries and globally.

The short clip has caught attention from viewers on both sides of the pro-life debate and has caused pause in the hearts of many. Plus a quick peek into a service at MVCC where we see a little girl singer, the choir and Pastor Jerry Hanoum. Here is the link:
