Therapeutic Cloning

Monday, Mar. 24, 2008

Reports today that therapeutic cloning successfully treated Parkinson's disease in mice make dialogue about the ethics of this practice ever more timely.  The Center has participated with the Santa Clara University College of Arts and Sciences and the Center for Performing Arts in sponsoring a series of programs on stem cells and cloning.  Coming up next in the series, April 3, is a production of Caryl Churchill’s play about cloning, “A Number.”  That will be followed by a talk, April 7, “The Catholic Conscience, Bioethics, and the Public Square,” by the chair of the President’s Council on Bioethics, Dr. Edmund Pellegrino.
