Report: Vatican Bishop: Humanity Heading for “Self-Genocide”

February 1, 2007

From LifeSite:

Bishop Elio Sgreccia, named in 2005 by Pope John Paul II as the president of the Pontifical Academy for Life, has told a group of journalists that the world is “marching toward a self-genocide of the human race” with the irresponsible use of biotechnologies and the widespread acceptance of the culture of death.

Calling them nothing more than a “craving for power,” these technological innovations, he said, aim “to change the order of the human species” and to create “men in the image and likeness of other men who have power.”

Bishop Sgreccia blamed the “weakness of the Christian community and the strength of secular society” for the advance of the culture of death. Secular society, he said, “now defends the selecting of children so that each one is perfect, without defect, and the eliminating of those that do not fulfil these conditions.”
