Title

BIOETHICS: THE CHURCH AND THE FAMILY

Publication Date

3-2016

Abstract

This paper highlights several emerging trends in bioethics and explores how they affect both the church and the family. These include prenatal technology, infanticide, assisted suicide and eugenics, gene editing, and enhancement biotechnology. It then argues that the church has been under-educated in bioethics for some time, particularly in the areas of abortion, dealing with the end of life, and reproductive technologies, especially IVF.
