Reverence for life my sister's keeper pp1

  1. 1. My Sister’s Keeper<br />Genetic Engineering – Right to Life<br />
  2. 2. Ethical Issue<br />Is it right to create a life for the purpose of saving another?<br />What is the difference between destroying life and prolonging death?<br />Who gets to choose what you get to do with your body?<br />
  3. 3. CONGREGATION FOR THE DOCTRINE OF THE FAITH http://www.vatican.va/roman_curia/congregations/cfaith/documents/rc_con_cfaith_doc_19870222_respect-for-human-life_en.html<br />Various procedures now make it possible to intervene not only in order to assist but also to dominate the processes of procreation. These techniques can enable man to "take in hand his own destiny",<br />
  4. 4. but they also expose him "to the temptation to go beyond the limits of a reasonable dominion over nature"<br />
  5. 5. They might constitute progress in the service of man, but they also involve serious risks. Many people are therefore expressing an urgent appeal that in interventions on procreation the values and rights of the human person be safeguarded.<br />
  6. 6. National Conference of Bishops<br />"As Catholic leaders and moral teachers, we believe that life is the most basic gift of a loving God - a gift over which we have stewardship but not absolute dominion.”<br />the Administrative Committee of the National Conference of Catholic Bishops<br />
  7. 7. Who gets to choose?<br />You are the “Steward” (protector, caretaker) of your body, this means that you make your decisions with the desires and direction of God in mind.<br />You choose, but to choose for your own ends is not what God desires. Just as a parent wishes for a child to play with a toy in the manner it was designed. The parent does not want their child to destroy the toy, simply to use it properly, the journey they take to get there is often their own.<br />
