Overview

At the forefront of the Catholic Church’s scientific research on human life is the Pontifical Academy for Life. Dedicated to research on bioethics, moral theology, and biomedical research, this academy studies “information . . . on the principle problems of biomedicine and law, relative to the promotion and defense of life.” All issues related to euthanasia, abortion, procreation, gene therapy, and legislation surrounding these issues fall under the study of the Academy for Life.

These 18 volumes explore the various issues involving human life and the human being from both scientific and legal perspectives. Dig into the real research behind the Catholic Church’s official theological doctrines on contraception, in vitro fertilization, abortion, euthanasia, and human sexuality.
