Bioethics

"In defending the right to life, in law and through a vibrant culture of life, America can show the world the path to a truly humane future, in which man remains the master, not the product of his technology."

Faith

Are They Reconcilable?

Science/Technology

Saint Thomas Aquinas

Doctor of the Church, Philosopher and Theologian

"We seek truth by Faith and Reason. Faith is what we know by God’s revelation; reason is what we know by experience and logic.  To have an absolute truth, faith and reason must be harmonious with each other.  Faith is consistent with reason, thus it cannot conflict with reason.  Cultural relativism defies logic. Therefore destroying innocent human life in order to preserve human life seems unreasonable."

Stem Cell Research
