Please spare some prayers today for the many citizens in Missouri who will be negatively affected by the passage of Amendment 2.
Pray for the many women who will become 'egg donors' and be paid a 'reasonable compensation,' for the sake of scientific research.
Pray for the many human embryos who will become guinea pigs and will be denied rights to a basic human life, for the sake of scientific research.
Pray for the people of Missouri to realize that they've been duped and told a lie, namely, that 'cloning only involves the implantation of an embryo in a mother's uterus,' for the sake of scientific research. (SCNT (Somatic Cell Nuclear Transfer) is cloning, no matter what the backers of Amendment 2 say).
Pray for the researchers who will struggle with the decision to create and destroy these human embryos, for the sake of scientific research.
Pray that our nation may get its priorities straightened out.
Finally, pray that other states may defeat similar amendments and propositions in upcoming elections.
