AUDIO RECORDING OF THIS EVENT
Embryonic stem cells and human cloning have emerged as defining issues in American public life. But why? Is there a divide between religion and science? Are opponents of embryo research “rational”? Do supporters of embryo research believe in equality? What will America be like if embryo research becomes a regular part of American medicine? Eric Cohen and Leon Kass explored the principles behind the American bioethics debate.
