Rational Thought @ UCSD Tomorrow 29 September: Stem Cell Research and Attitudes toward the Fetus

When: Wednesday 29 September, 6-8 pm

Where: Red Shoe Room, Price Center West, UCSD

Who: Stephen Baird MD, Professor Emeritus of Pathology, UCSD School of Medicine

What: Free discussion, Attitudes Toward the Fetus: Sumer to the Present

One of the main issues that skeptics and rationalists have fought about with fundamentalists in recent American history is the use of fetal stem cells in medicine. The concept of the beginning of a human life has evolved over the ages, and differs substantially today between Western countries or even within their populations. Come hear Stephen Baird M.D., Professor Emeritus of Pathology at the UCSD School of Medicine, talk about this core issue for rationalists and secularists. What happens today with this question will have real-world impact and will certainly affect your medical options in the future.
