Bioethics is the application of ethics to the fields of medicine and healthcare. It affects different areas of scientific study when those scientific studies intersect with life. That’s where stem cell research, cloning and genetic modification come into play.
Today on Educate For Life, Kevin is joined by Alan Shlemon to delve into the topic of bioethics. Alan Shlemon has worked as an author and speaker for Stand to Reason since 2004. He trains Christians to share their convictions in a persuasive, yet gracious manner. Alan teaches about some of the most controversial issues of our time: abortion, evolution, homosexuality, bioethics, and Islam. He has been a guest on both radio and television, and has spoken to thousands of adults and students across the country at churches, conferences, and college campuses.
Stem cell research and cloning are cutting-edge issues, but ones that can be confusing to many Christians. Alan will help you understand the basic science behind these technologies and why scientists are keen on using them. Once you understand the procedures, it will become clear why some medical technologies are helpful and why some are hurtful. Plus, you’ll learn to persuasively share your convictions in a way that takes biblical and scientific principles on these issues seriously.
