9780830827831: Human Dignity in the Biotech Century: A Christian Vision for Public Policy (Colson, Charles)

What will be the greatest moral challenge facing our society throughout this century? Are we ready to face it? Editors Charles W. Colson and Nigel M. de S. Cameron, along with a panel of expert contributors, make the case in this book that the greatest watershed debates of the twenty-first century concerning ethics and public policy will surround the issue of biotechnology. In twelve essays they address several of the legal and ethical challenges before us: embryo research, stem cell research, cloning, genetic engineering, gene therapy, pharmacogenomics, cybernetics, nanotechnology and, of course, abortion. Contributors include

  • William L. Saunders, J. D., Family Research Council
  • Christopher Hook, M.D., The Mayo Clinic
  • Henk Jochemsen, Ph.D., Free University of Amsterdam
  • David A. Prentice, Ph.D., Indiana State University
  • Nathan A. Adams IV, Ph.D., J.D., Christian Legal Society
  • David Stevens, M.D., Christian Medical Association
  • Paige Comstock Cunningham, J. D., Americans United for Life
  • C. Ben Mitchell, Ph.D., Trinity Evangelical Divinity School
  • Richard Doerflinger, M.A., Secretariat for Pro-life, National Conference of Catholic Bishops
  • Wesley J. Smith, J.D., International Task Force on Euthanasia and Assistend Suicide
Leaders in their fields, these contributors point out the crucial role Christians can and should play in the public square. The well-informed and forward-looking perspectives they present will help us prepare for the challenges ahead.

From the Author:

"Just as most Christians were asleep thirty years ago when Roe v. Wade was decided and abortion on demand became legal, we are again in danger of sleeping through another moral catastrophe. With the latest advances in biotechnology, not only are we taking upon ourselves the god-like prerogative of ending human life as we choose (as we have done with abortion and euthanasia), but we are attempting to appropriate the god-like prerogative of making human life as we choose. The most profound question we are being asked today is which is the more grievous sin against God—to take life created in his image or to make life created in man’s image?"

—Charles W. Colson, Co-Editor, "Human Dignity in the Biotech Century"
