I heard a phrase recently, “There’s no cure for stupid.” That phrase came to my mind when I read about this:
Want your baby to resemble your favorite celebrity? A Los Angeles sperm bank is already one step ahead….
California Cryobank, a clinic that has been in the fertility business for more than 30 years, has launched a celebrity-inspired service called “Donor Look-A-Like,” which allows clients to search for potential donors who mirror certain “actors, athletes, musicians, or anyone else famous enough to be found on the Web.”
The list includes performers such as Johnny Depp, Tom Hanks, Russell Crowe and Justin Timberlake…. Athletes on the list include golfer Tiger Woods, tennis player Andy Roddick… quarterback Tony Romo and basketball player Jason Williams….
But, in an era when sex-selection abortion, in utero genetic manipulation and other techniques are raising concerns about a society that engineers and custom-designs children, Mr. Brown denied that his sperm bank’s service has anything in common with such “Brave New World” practices….
Just how far will we go to reject God as our sovereign Creator? We are made in God’s image and we are to be like him, not like any actor, athlete, or anyone else famous enough to be on the web.
“Then God said, ‘Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.’ So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.” Genesis 1:26-27
