Vatican Bioethics

There'll be a very interesting press conference tomorrow in the John Paul II Hall of the Sala Stampa, the Holy See Press Office. On the topic of "The human embryo before implanting. Scientific aspects and bioethical considerations," it's a look-forward to next week's General Assembly of the Pontifical Academy for Life, and will feature Bishop Elio Sgreccia, the Academy's president, and Kevin FitzGerald, an associate professor of genetics in the Oncology Department at Georgetown University Medical Center, among others.

Should make for some good copy.... If I hear anything, will pass it along.
