Kroger speaks on reproductive technology

Chair of the Religious Studies Department Dr. Daniel Kroger, OFM, presented a paper at the University of Philippines (UP) Law Center on October 2. Titled “Christian Perspectives on Reproductive Technology,” his paper discussed the varied responses of Christian churches to contemporary medical technology aimed at fertility enhancement. As a theologian specializing in ethics, Kroger presented the church’s assessment of in vitro fertilization procedures. At the same time, he also pointed out that a responsible Catholic couple might choose such means in good conscience.

The paper was part of an interdisciplinary forum involving lawyers, physicians, and ethicists. The forum was titled “Law and Ethics: Issues and Perspectives on Reproductive Technology.” The Reproductive Health Rights and Ethics Center of the UP College of Medicine organized the program. It was part of the UP College of Law’s celebration of its 90th anniversary. The papers will be published in the Journal of the Reproductive Health Rights and Ethics Center.
