The City of Liquid Nitrogen

Anne Morse, in a NationalReviewOnline feature, tells us about a vast population of human beings that are known to exist by only a few people. The estimated 400,000 people is about the same number of people in Omaha, NE where I live. But the undiscovered do not enjoy the sun and fresh air of my temperate climate. Instead they live in liquid nitrogen tanks; cryogenically frozen for later use in experiments, harvested for parts, or in a few instances, allowed to mature into "normal" human beings and walk the face of God's great earth.

We grow these humans much as we would sorghum, and we treat them with less dignity. The Culture of Death has now become engaged in the practice of both creation and destruction. Perhaps evil has bounds beyond our imagination.

I certainly respect Anne Morse; her story celebrates the victory of those who survive. I, however, remain depressed by the plight of those who do not.

  • What is our world coming to? Does this mean that we are preserving human life in liquid nitrogen, only to destroy the very life that was being preserved in the first place? And for what? This reminds me of a scene out of Frankenstein or something. It makes you wonder what other life forms (aliens) could be preserving in tanks for future experiments. This is scary to me.

  • tj1625,
    To me, one of the scariest facets of this story is how unaware our society is regarding this. The number of humans being held is abominable. As you point out, for what purpose? So for Frankenstein, genetic alterations are a natural consequence of these opportunities. The way to stop it is to prevent it from ever starting in the first place. Pre-emergence is the best defense.

  • With mankind's love and fascination for anything "new and improved" it was just a matter of time that human life would be used in the same text as the new fall harvest of wheat or whatnot. The value of human life is falling faster than the U.S. dollar.

  • The ethical aspects are not significant to people anymore and they are determination do whatever pleases. This is extreme. I hope this is not the case and if it is so, who ever is in charge of this try of business should get their head checked. We need not to grow human but to educate them instead. I truly believe that one day we as human will never be conceived the natural way. I hope I don’t live to see this.
