Part two of a two-part lecture on bioethics by Center for Inquiry president and CEO Ronald A. Lindsay. On September 19, 2008, Dr. Lindsay presented a lecture entitled “Bioethics and Public Policy” at the Center for Inquiry / Transnational in Amherst, New York. Each new development in biomedical technology prompts religious objections that the new technology is “unnatural” or involves “playing God.” Lindsay argues that public policy disputes with a moral dimension can—and should—be resolved without resort to religion. With dual doctoral degrees in philosophy and law, Dr. Lindsay was an attorney in private practice for over twenty-five years before joining the Center for Inquiry, first as legal director, and subsequently as President and CEO. His recently published book is Future Bioethics: Overcoming Taboos, Myths, and Dogma.
