Abstract

Dónal O’Mathúna will discuss the ethics of stem cell research, examining the arguments most commonly raised on both sides of the issue. He will explain why he finds the arguments most compelling in favour of adult stem cell research and against embryonic stem cell research. He will discuss the incorporation of faith into public discussions of bioethics in a pluralistic society.
