“Playing God,” or Using the Brains God Gave Us?
Guest Speaker: Donna Yarri, PhD Professor of Theology, Alvernia University
Lay Leader: Allan Pallay
The mapping of the human genome and accompanying technologies have created issues today with which we will be grappling for a long time. We have the capability to correct imperfections and “design” children with enhanced characteristics. This talk will provide a little background on the advances in genetics, and will then focus on the ethical, legal, and social implications of genetic screening and genetic enhancement.
Please join us for our Third Sunday Potluck which will follow the service.
