Stem Cell Research: An Approach to Bioethics Based on Scientific Naturalism
In this position paper, which represents the Center for Inquiry's response to President Bush's block on embryonic stem-rell research, Ronald A. Lindsay argues that embryonic stem cell research should be funded by the government because of its critical importance in the advancement of medicine. Arguments against funding based on the alleged moral equivalence of an embryo to an adult human are decisively refuted.
Dr. Lindsay is Director of Research and Legal Affairs for CFI. He is an honors graduate of the University of Virginia School of Law and received his Ph.D. in bioethics from Georgetown University.
