A Universal Moral Language: Bioethics and the Natural Law

The Canadian delegation attending the Knights of Columbus/National Catholic Bioethics Centre symposium for bishops posed this morning for a group photo, as we took a pause between sessions on issues that touch on natural law and church teaching (viz. reproductive technologies, the feminist case against abortion, stem cell research, same-sex attactions and gender identity, euthanasia and physician-assisted suicide, health care legislation in the USA, special questions in Spanish-speaking countries). Two of the Canadian bishops are serving in Honduras.
