Explaining Catholic Teaching: Gene Therapy
Human genetics is a new, rapidly advancing science. While genetic knowledge may be good in itself, it can be put to good or bad use. In non-technical language, the author deals with gene therapy and other genetic interventions, setting out the background science, flagging areas of concern, and clearly explaining Catholic teaching on all the issues. Further reading and a full glossary are provided.
CTS Explanations is a series explaining in everyday language Catholic teaching on a range of current pressing moral and ethical issues. This booklet has been produced with the Linacre Centre, the leading Catholic centre for healthcare ethics in Great Britain and Ireland.
