As rapid advances in technology present new moral questions, a Christian is expected to give “reason of his hope” in dealing with bioethical issues. This unit aims to help the student to understand the most relevant issues in bioethics, as well as offering a theological perspective to aid students in their pastoral work. The course will give a general introduction to bioethics and then focuses on particular ethical problems in the different stages of the human life from birth to death to discern clearly the particulars and anticipate the moral discernment of future developments in science and technology.
