Bioethics and Theology | Dominican University College

Bioethics and Theology

Many ethical issues and societal debates are raised by the development of life sciences and the advances in biomedicine: medically assisted procreation, genetic engineering, biotechnology, cloning, interventions on the human body and the brain, medicalization of the beginning and the end of life, etc. In these bioethical debates, can theology still be relevant? What type of contribution is theology in a position to provide? What are the resources that theology can mobilize in order to reinvent a creative discourse that could help elucidate ethical issues and elaborate ethical reference points for contemporary society?
