Quote of the day

“According to Islamic teaching, I discovered, the foetus becomes a full human being only when it is “ensouled” at 120 days from the moment of conception, and so the research at Royan on human embryonic stem cells is not seen as playing God, as it takes place at a much earlier stage. Thus, while there is much that the west finds unpalatable about life under Islamic rule, when it comes to genetics they are not held back by their religious doctrine.”
