CDF Issues New and IMPORTANT Document

This document should be read by everyone in the Church. It is a titled Dignitas Personae (The Dignity of the Person) and is about bioethics. In this day where lines are blurred and people very confused about life and death issues being practiced in the medical field, this is sorely needed.

The USCCB has it up in a PDF format with some Q&A and a news release.

Some of the issues discussed in the document include:
  • The life and dignity of unborn human beings
  • Fertility treatments
  • Infertility
  • Stem cell research
  • Embryo adoption
  • Pre-implantation drugs and devices
  • Gene therapy
  • Genetic enhancement/designer babies
  • Human/animal hybrid embryos
We need to be informed on this subject.
