German Bishops Denounce Unnatural Selection in Germany

Bishops Denounce Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis
Edit: Yet another avenue of attack against the Church and Her teachings which we'll later come to discover were right all along, after the unintended consequences involved with these things have had their tragic consequences.

It falls into a similar category with condom use. Incidentally, AIDS is down in Rhodesia. Do you know why?

ROME, JULY 14, 2011 ( Germany's bishops responded to the July 7 government go-ahead for Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis with a reminder that the selection of a "healthy" embryo always entails the rejection of "unhealthy" human embryos -- and thus a violation of human dignity.

This was part of their response to the intense Lower Chamber debate that resulted in a 326-260 vote to allow PGD.

Archbishop Robert Zollitsch of Freiburg im Breisgauand, president of the German Bishops' Conference, reminded in a statement that the "selection of human embryos violates the precept of human dignity, which respects all human beings from the beginning."

"Every human being is unique as a person and the bearer of a dignity that is not disposable, notwithstanding his level of development, his actual capacities, his talents, his strong and weak points or his social position, and this in all the phases of his existence," the bishops affirmed.
