Katie Couric and the Progressive Science-Loving Church is an article by Catholic scientist STACY TRASANCOS. It discusses a recent conference co-hosted by the Vatican’s Pontifical Council for Culture and the Stem for Life Foundation. It brought together scientists with religious, government, and cultural leaders to discuss the future of stem cell research. And Katie Couric was allowed to attend.
I’m sure many of us can get behind the Catholic church teaching that adult stem cell research is acceptable. As Trasancos says, “This is a conversation that needs to be happening, and it needs to be guided by people of faith, hope, and love.”
