A Christian Perspective on Biotechnology

Posted by Picasa

The biotechnology revolution has already begun. With the completion of the mapping of the human genome in 2000, we are poised for many life-changing biotechnological discoveries and innovations. However despite its many promises, biotechnology has also generated many controversies.

This book is a modest attempt to clarify some of these issues which include the following:

  • When does human life begin?
  • Should abortion be allowed?
  • Should Christian couples suffering from infertility consider in-vitrio fertilisation (IVF) or 'test tube babies'?
  • How should stem cell research and therapeutic cloning be regulated?
  • Should reproductive cloning be banned?
  • Should scientists be allowed to make changes or 'improve' the human blueprint?
