GUEST: COLLEEN TRONSON, Executive Director, Metro Women’s Center
Advances in medical technology over the decades have saved countless lives whether through new types of surgeries, imaging, therapies, medications, etc. Of course it hasn’t all been positive—consider the harm caused by certain medications, including the Covid so-called “vaccine”.
The advances in fertility and pre-natal technologies has been no less astounding. Procedures like artificial insemination and in vitro fertilization (IVF) have helped childless couples have children.
But with these technologies come ethical questions: what about the extra human lives in embryo form created through IVF that are frozen and then not used? Or what about when a homosexual couple pays for a baby through artificial insemination, IVF, or surrogacy? Or what about pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD), which screens for genetic abnormalities and allows for sex selection?
January is Sanctity of Life Month and so we will devote this weekend’s program to questions around fertility technologies and the greatest injustice in our country—the legal murder of around 65 million pre-born babies since 1973 when abortion was legalized.
Colleen Tronson, executive director of Metro Woman’s Center in Minnesota, will be our guest. She will also give perspective on why pro-life candidates haven’t fared well recently in elections in light of the overturning of Roe vs. Wade by the U.S. Supreme Court in June 2022.
