   schema:description "A practical guide for Catholics through the controversial field of bioethics. Lay people today need to be as educated as possible in catholic teaching in bioethics due to their huge civic responsibilities related to the burning issues of our time such as euthanasia, prenatal genetic diagnosis, and so forth. We read about these issues constantly in the newspapers and see them reported on TV. It can be difficult to keep up to date with developments in these areas, at the same time as staying informed about church teaching regarding them. Bioethics Matters is an essential resource for Catholics who are dealing with these medical and end-of -life issues. This succinct guide clearly sets out catholic teaching on today's most debated issues: stem cell research, reproductive technologies, euthanasia, and much more. By presenting real-life situations, this guide provides readers with examples of catholic ethical decision making in action. The purpose is to show how catholic teaching can help people today navigate their way through tough decisions and choices."@en ;
