Symposium on Dignitas Personae
Brugger, E. Christian
National Catholic Bioethics Quarterly 2009 Autumn; 9(3): 461-483
The Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, under the prefecture of Joseph Ratzinger, published its instruction Donum vitae in 1987 to provide moral guidance on bioethical issues. Since 1987, many new ethical issues have arisen, especially in the areas of regenerative medicine (which includes stem cell research) and assisted reproduction. To address these the CDF, under the prefecture of William Levada, published the bioethical instruction Dignitas personae in December 2008. The present symposium includes reflections on the strengths and weaknesses of the new document by six moral theologians noted for their work in bioethics: Christian Brugger, John Finnis, Luke Gormally, Christopher Kaczor, William E. May, and Peter F. Ryan, S.J.
