In the not-too-distant future of Embryo House, the shockwaves of Roe v. Wade have wrought consequences that seven Supreme Court justices never imagined in 1973. The effects of the decision have trickled into the fabric of society without so much as a whisper of alarm. The law has decreed that life begins at birth, and now no one publicly debates it anymore. Enter Dr. Amos Kimbro, whose years of clandestine research have delivered conclusive proof that could shatter the new status quo. His lifelong goal to end abortion may finally come to fruition, but to achieve his dream he must live his nightmare. When a family secret is revealed, Dr. Kimbro and his son, David, find themselves on the run from the police, a pervasive government agency, and a radical pro-life group. Each has its own nefarious uses for Amos and David, and their only source of help is Ron Merritt, an attorney they aren't sure they can trust. With powerful enemies at every turn, Ron Merritt must find a way to keep his client alive long enough to appear in court, but even he doesn't know the full truth. The final secret, once exposed, could open a door no one can close. Embryo House is a technological thriller set in a future that may be closer than anyone wants to believe, where secrets cannot be concealed and killing for profit takes on an entirely new meaning. 'Mark Twain warns of Huckleberry Finn, 'That any person to find a moral in it will be banished...' Phil Rigsby has written an interesting sci-fi novel that clearly and unabashedly contains a moral, indeed a Christian moral, but is developed without being self-righteous, judgmental, or preachy.' Dr. Elmo Hall, Professor Emeritus, Oklahoma Christian University

Too tiny to see with the naked eye, the human embryo was just a hypothesis until the microscope made observation of embryonic development possible. This changed forever our view of the minuscule cluster of cells that looms large in questions about the meaning of life. Embryos under the Microscope examines how our scientific understanding of the embryo has evolved from the earliest speculations of natural philosophers to today's biological engineering, with its many prospects for life-enhancing therapies. Jane Maienschein shows that research on embryos has always revealed possibilities that appear promising to some but deeply frightening to others, and she makes a persuasive case that public understanding must be informed by up-to-date scientific findings. Direct observation of embryos greatly expanded knowledge but also led to disagreements over what investigators were seeing. Biologists confirmed that embryos are living organisms undergoing rapid change and are not in any sense functioning persons. They do not feel pain or have any capacity to think until very late stages of fetal development. New information about DNA led to discoveries about embryonic regulation of genetic inheritance, as well as evolutionary relationships among species. Scientists have learned how to manipulate embryos in the lab, taking them apart, reconstructing them, and even synthesizing--practically from scratch--cells, body parts, and maybe someday entire embryos. Showing how we have learned what we now know about the biology of embryos, Maienschein changes our view of what it means to be alive.
