Dignitas Personae Presentation/discussion on Sept. 8, 2008
This new document — The Dignity of a Person — is an instruction released by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith for Pope Benedict XVI. It "seeks to provide some responses to...new bioethical questions... to contribute 'to the formation of conscience' (n 10) and to encourage biomedical research respectful of the dignity of every human being and of procreation." Dignitas Personae is "to be received by Catholics 'with the religious assent of their spirit (DP 37)." (From Vatican Summary)
