TheoIV S2 Final 2014

Study for Final

What is the 5th Commandment? Thou shall not kill, which means respect life.
What is the definition of murder? The unjust taking of innocent human life.
When does life begin? At conception, when sperm meets egg.
What is the HHS Mandate (ObamaCare) controversy about? The government is trying to force people to pay for a product that goes against their religious beliefs. It violates their right to the free practice of religion.
Why is abortion immoral? It takes the life of an innocent human being who has not been given the chance to develop or even defend itself. It is not right under any circumstance.
What is in-vitro fertilization (IVF)? When sperm and egg are taken from mom and dad and then put together in a science lab, then the embryo is put back into the mom to grow.
Why is IVF immoral? Because doctors create more embryos than they need and discard the rest or use them for science research.
What is embryonic stem cell research? Doctors use embryos that were created through IVF and let them grow 3-8 days before they take out their stem cells and the embyro dies. They use the stem cells to try and cure dieases.
Why is embryonic stem cell research immoral? because scientists are creating and killing human beings just so they can try to help cure other people. The intention is good, but the act is evil.
What is PGD? Pre-implantation Genetic Diagnosis. Doctors create lots of embryos and pick the "best" one according to their standards and discard the rest. This allows parents to "design" their babies.
Why is PGD immoral? Because people are playing God with the creation of their children, and they kill the unwanted embryos.
What is eugenics? It means good genes, it is the study of breeding better people, by picking good genes over unwanted genes.
Why is eugenics immoral? Because it leads to people trying to play God and decide who is worth living and who is not. It has led to things like Hitler's obsession with the perfect race and other terrible sins.
What is euthanasia? Taking the life of someone who is really sick or who has a "poor quality or life"
Why is euthanasia immoral? It violates the 5th commandment, because only God has the right to decide who should live and when someone should die.
Why is suicide immoral? It does not respect the life God has given the person who takes their own life.
Do we need to do embryonic stem cell research? No, 1st because it is wrong morally and 2nd because adult stem cell research works better and doesn't kill anyone.
What is self-defense? Protecting your life or someone else's from an unjust aggressor. It does not violate the 5th commandment because it is respecting life (your life).
What is a non-combatant? People in a combat zone that are innocent and unarmed. It is immoral to target them.
What is direct sterilization? When a person intentionally makes it impossible for their body to give life (have children), usually done surgically.
Why is it direct sterilization immoral? It does harm to a body part that is totally healthy (which is the same as mutilation of the body) and rejects God's great gift to create life.
How does cloning work? They take an egg from the female, remove its unique genetic material and put in the DNA material from the person they want to clone,shock it, and then they put it back into a women's womb to grow.
Why is cloning wrong? Because it is totally playing God and taking away His authority over life. Humans are meant to be products of love, and not science.
What is a Savior sibling? A child that is created by their parents through IVF and PGD in order to save an older sick sibling (kind of like an organ farm for the other kid).
Why is it wrong to create Savior sibling? Each human person is valuable for their own sake and should the product of love not created as a human organ factory. God has a loving purpose for everyone and this is a immoral reason to create a person.
Why is the death penalty wrong? No one except God has the right or authority to take the life of another person, innocent or guilty, and we do not need to kill them in order to protect society.
What is NFP? Natural Family Planning or Fertility Awareness. It is a scientific method that married couples can use to decide how many children they will have and when. It works by keeping track of the women's cycle.
