Morality is easily sacrificed on the altar of this anti-scientific church. They claim to be motivated by ‘ethical concerns’ but it is clearly banning of potentially live saving technology which isn’t ethical.

They are NOT motivated by human well-being. Their motivation is religious and anything religious is dangerous because religion always stands in the way of human progress.

This decision will need to be overturned at some stage in the future and hopefully not too far away.
