Transhumanism – I’m wondering how many of you have heard that term? The lead story in this month’s NewsBrief, "The Transhumanism Trap: Using Technology to Perfect the Human Race," offers a succinct description of what transhumanism is (and isn’t). We have included this article because the Church must be aware of these issues and be prepared to offer biblical guidance on the use of such technologies.
You’ll also find good reading on:
• how the Anglicans’ Book of Common Prayers can be used to bridge the hotly-debated gap between Church and State
• stem cell research, both embryonic and adult stem cells
• Alabama’s extension of legal protection to the unborn child.
And while it may not even be shocking to many of us anymore, our back cover story reports that “a new survey of African-American youth (ages 13 – 21) has found that almost half report considerable pressure to have sex.” So if this statistic isn’t shocking, we need to ask ‘why not?’ and ‘what can we do to restore the appropriate shock-reaction so that more are moved to work to change this statistic!’
As always, we encourage you to consider becoming a regular donor to Anglicans for Life.
