New Vatican Instruction on Bioethics

 — Dec. 12, 200812 déc. 2008

A new document entitled Dignitatis Personae was released by the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith on Friday morning. The document on “certain questions of bioethics” is intended to update the current teaching on moral issues arising from in-vitro fertilization, stem cell technology, cloning, and other embryonic research. The last comprehensive CDF Instruction on these issues was published February 22, 1987 with the title Donum Vitae.

• The document is available on the Vatican website.
• A summary of the document was released to reporters at the morning news conference.
• An excellent explanation of the document and its history is available from John L. Allen Jr. at the National Catholic Reporter.
