The magistrium and bioethics

For those who may be interested:

Lisa Fullam and William R. O'neill, S.J., "Bioethics and Public Policy," 71 Theological Studies 168 (2010).

The abstract:

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.  Part II explores the implications of these developments for public policy in religiously pluralist societies.
