Yes,they will cost lives with there moralizing.
No, the Church has a God given right to moralize even if it costs childrens lives.
And it will continuously try to stop technological or biological/medical advancements.
Uhhh, look at the Middle ages. Not much technological progress. When people started doubting the church, the Renaissance began.
Clearly progress is blocked. This isn't even a question considering there is mountains of evidence that, yes religion drags on technology.
It is not for scientists to play the role of God, that role is reserved for God and God alone.
I don't fully understand the question, but it definitely isn't the first one. I also don't see the Church working against technological, biological, and medical advancements. That idea is a figment of the imagination.
The church is simply saying, don't jump your gun, 3 Parent babies? Is this really ok? where would you be happy to draw the line? cloning humans? What happens if these children in 30 years have children with unavoidable birth defects, what if it causes a child to be born with mental issues because of science? The church is simply saying, don't rush into making this law acceptable, they also say they are behind science if it will alleviate the pain of mankind, or something like that. So they're not against curing disease and alleviating pain, we just don't know the after effects in years to come of this treatment, they're just a calm voice in the scientific storm, that's my opinion at least. Such matters should be given patience and caution, it was science who gave pregnant women Thalidomide and we all know how that turned out.
You should have put The Church of England instead of just the Church, because I associated "The Church" as the Vatican the first time around. I actually read the article, and the Church said that "not enough study had been done" Where did this whole blocking progress come from? Also, your answer choices seem a bit slanted.
