fl-okkażjoni ta’ Jum il-Ħajja : minn inewsmalta.com

Il-membru parlamentari Deo Debattista kien il-kelliem f’isem il-PL fejn issuġġerixxa li għandha titwaqqaf klinika favur il-ħajja biex nisa u tfajliet li għal raġuni jew oħra jkunu qed isibuha diffiċli biex ikomplu t-tqala jkollhom fejn jiġu megħjuna.
Huwa qal li sal-lum mara jew tfajla li jkunu għaddejjin minn xi problema biex ikomplu bit-tqala faċli jidħlu fl-internet u jsibu klinika fejn jistgħu jtemmu t-tqala imma m’hemmx fejn ikunu jistgħu jingħataw għajnuna kemm jekk psikoloġika kif ukoll jekk finanzjarja.
It-Tabib Debattista għamilha ċara li huwa jemmen li l-ħajja tibda mill-konċepiment u appella lil dawk preżenti biex iwasslu dan il-messaġġ. Huwa qal ukoll li jemmen fl-IVF għax iqis din il-proċedura bħala waħda favur il-ħajja u koppja li ma jistax ikollha tfal għandha tiġi mgħejjuna.
Madankollu wissa li l-proċess m’għandux iservi biex jinqerdu l-ulied u nsista li l-embrijun m’għandux jiġi meqjus qisu xi ‘side effect’ tal-proċedura (IVF). Debattista nsista wkoll li għandha tinbidel in-nomenklatura tal-embrijun u sostna li trid issir, fi kliemu, “babies żgħar”.
Id-deputat Laburista rrefera għall-għajta ta’ Malta bħala l-aqwa fl-Ewropa u sostna li diġà hija l-aqwa fl-Ewropa fil-ħarsien tat-trabi qabel it-twelid fejn anke nsista li m’għandnix nimxu wara pajjiżi oħra imma rridu mmexxu bl-eżempju.
Debattista wissa biex ma nagħtux dak li huwa sejjaħ “tiċpisa politika” lil dan is-suġġett għax jekk nagħmlu hekk min għadu ma fehemx itella l-ħitan tal-injoranza u jiffoka fuq dak li jemmen.
Huwa temm billi qal li hawn nies intelliġenti aktar minnu li jġibu raġunijiet dwar l-iffriżar tal-embrijuni u t-terminazzjoni tat-tqala imma sostna li huwa jgħid li intelliġenti kemm huma intelliġenti l-argumenti tagħhom huwa jgħidilhom li mingħajr il-ħajja ma jistax ikun hemm intelliġenza.

  1. Dear Dr. Deo,
    I’m surprised that a man of science like you is further increasing the confusion and misinformation as to what an embryo really is. How can you say that an embryo is a small baby when it is just a ball of cells. Because of the well deserved respect you have from the public, you are in a position to influence. I have no problem with this, but considering how many people are talking about the embryo protection act without knowing what an embryo is, the least you can do is say the truth, that the embryo is a mass – a ball- of undifferenciated cells which DOES NOT look at all like a baby. Calling embryos small babies is a misleading untruth. In no scientific text are embryos called little babies. I would have expected such a comment from a fundamentalist pro-life campaigner who wants to indoctrinate not from a medical doctor.

  2. Granted. Same genetic make-up. Even a cardiac muscle cell and an insulin producing pancreas cell have the same genetic make-up. But you cannot say they are the same. But what makes a five day embryo different from a baby is that in the embryo NONE of the cells are differenciated and all are totipotent. In a more developed embryo, say 7 weeks only the umbilical cord contains totipotent cells. The other cells making up the embryo, although genetically identical are now differentiated and form tissues, organs and therefore an organism. As to whether life starts at conception or not, different people have different opinions which cannot be verified scientifically.
