Stem-Cell Research and Christianity: The Value of Life and Suffering
Phil A. Jarrett
Dr. Gerald Osborn and Dr. David Murphy, Faculty Mentors

On both sides of the embryonic stem-cell debate, bioethicists and Christian scholars have adopted assumptions concerning the hierarchy of human life. This paper will inspect the Catholic and mainstream Evangelical Christian response to stem-cell research as a science with too high a moral cost as well as the human perspective fueling further scientific research. Topics being addressed include the issue of what makes human life valuable and where life truly begins.
