Which is More Ethical?
If you're anywhere near Santa Cruz on Monday (April 17th), you might want to head over to UC Santa Cruz to hear Laurie Zoloth discuss "the ethical considerations surrounding stem-cell research." I sure would if I weren't clear across the country.
To Christians who believe that life begins at the moment of conception, particularly Catholics and conservative Protestants, destroying embryos to harvest cells for whatever purpose is unacceptable, said Zoloth, the director of the Center for Bioethics, Science and Society at the Feinberg School of Medicine at Northwestern University.Ellen Suckiel, a professor of philosophy at UCSC who plans to teach a course on the ethics of stem-cell research, addresses "the debate beyond the debate."
"Even if one grants that human life begins at conception, then what is still debatable is what's more important: an embryo or the lives that this technology could save or enhance," she said.That, to me, is the crux of the matter. How do we look such desperate suffering in the face and say no?
