March 2016 – Ethical issues at the beginning of life

Weds 9 March 2016 – Ethical issues at the beginning of life – introduced by Robert

A range of ethical issues arise especially at the beginning of life. Some are of long standing.  Others have arisen more recently as a result of scientific advances.  We might think of the issues under three headings, relating to conception, to genetics and to personal development.

For an example related to conception – if we are in a position to choose, how many children should we have? Is it wrong to restrict the number? Is it wrong not to restrict the number?
