Human Embryo Adoption: Biotechnology, Marriage, and the Right to Life Edited by Rev. Thomas V. Berg, L.C., and Edward J. Furton A co-publication of The National Catholic Bioethics Center and The Westchester Institute for Ethics & the Human Person Publication Date: November 2006 Pages: 364, including bibliography ISBN-10: 0-935372-50-4; ISBN-13: 978-0-935372-50-2 What should we do with the hundreds of thousands of frozen human embryos held in fertility clinics around the world? One solution would be adoption. Would such a course of action be moral? That is the question faced in this volume. The leading thinkers in Catholic bioethics divide into two opposing camps in a great debate over biotechnology, sexuality, marriage, and the right to life. "Within the bond of civility and fidelity to the Church's teaching, Catholics are called to bring their best thinking to bear on the troubled questions of our time. This collection beautifully exemplifies Catholics doing just that." - Rev. Richard John Neuhaus, Editor-in-Chief, First Things "Catholic philosophers and theologians defending all sides of the 'embryo adoption' debate make a tremendous contribution to the Church in this volume. Those perplexed by the debate need look no farther to find out what it is about-and those taking one side or the other may discover that it is not as simple as they thought." - Richard Doerflinger, Deputy Director, Pro-Life Secretatiat, USCCB
