Part I of this note assesses recent developments in embryonic stem cell research and HIV/AIDS treatment and prevention in light of two recent magisterial texts: Dignitatis personae on Certain Bioethical Questions of the Congregation for the Doctrine of Faith and Pope Benedict XVI's encyclical, Caritas in veritate.
