The Morning Call, Sunday, August 6, 2006
Opinion piece by Father Thomas Dailey, OSFS, professor of theology and director of the Salesian Center for Faith and Culture at DeSales, addresses the debate over stem cells and the recent presidential veto of legislation to expand federal support for research. Father Dailey states the debate will continue in spite of partisan politics and scientific agendas because "this issue touches the very core of how we think about who we are."
The beginning of this ethical controversy extends back more than three decades, and its future remains open to changing thoughts, said Father Dailey. As a democratic society, we certainly can, and probably will, disagree about ethical questions. But for the debates to be worthwhile, we must at least be honest and accurate about what is at stake.
