Putting one's values into action


After not enough sleep last night and a lot of playing with R today and feeling sort of zonked about now, I feel like sharing an article that was reported today. Many people take moral positions but do not even try to live up to them. Until recently, this was arguably true of hold that it is immoral to destroy human embryos, even for science. However, last year at a clinic in Spain
women began to adopt surplus frozen embryos and bear them to term in order to “save” them from research.
. While I do not agree that using embryos for research is immoral, adopting embryos strikes me as a refreshingly self-consistent way for opponents of research on embryos to live by the beliefs the profess.
