His body is slowing down, but his mind is miles ahead

I've always wondered what it would be like to be paralyzed with my mind intact; like Jim Levitt whose physical abilities are limiting his movement to only his fingertips, but whose mind is watching, with trepidation, the slow progress of the Culture of Death.

The 71-year-old, says the story, is “appalled by the groundswell of support for what he calls an immoral and ‘pointless’ approach to pursuing cures when so many other routes such as adult stem cell research already have shown promise.”
It quotes him saying: “If experimenting on just one embryo would lead to a cure for me, I absolutely would not do it. It’s murder of a human being.”
ALS — Lou Gehrig’s disease — causes loss of control of motor skills, and can affect a person’s ability to speak, swallow and, in the end, breathe.
Now that's a Catholic! We need more holy men like Jim to battle Obama's reign of terror on the unborn.
