Questions of Life and Death
Christian Faith And Medical Intervention
Richard Harries, as a member of the Human Fertilisation and Embryo Authority from 2003-9, and chair of its Ethics and Law Advisory Committee, has been at the heart of thinking about issues include cloning, human-animal hybrids and preimplantation genetic diagnosis. He shows that the Western Christian tradition is compatible with work in this area. In the House of Lords he was involved in debates on euthanasia, and is critical of much current thinking on the subject.
