Regenerative Medicine, Politics, and the High Price of Moral Constraint
Lysaght and Campbell note the promise of regenerative medicine and call for a broader philosophical and public discourse that extends beyond questions surrounding the moral status of embryos. While this is a laudable aim, it fails to confront the pernicious, controlling and suffocating impact that religion has had on debates surrounding stem cell research, regenerative medicine and science more broadly. While bioethics should privilege tolerance and pluralism, it also has an important role in activism and as a critic of positions and institutions that seek to dominate and control public discourse.
