Center Highlights Top Student Papers in Bioethics

Friday, January 13th, 2012 by Dr. Dennis Sullivan

The Fall Edition of CedarEthics Online, our Web-based journal of top undergraduate student papers in bioethics, is now available. This edition features two new contributions :

1) Tia Zirkle’s piece, “The Tao and the Art of Feminine Beauty,” is a thoughtful reflection on Elizabeth Elliot, C.S. Lewis, natural law, and femininity.

2) Christina Kinch, in her essay, “Let Them be Heroes,” gives a theologically provocative defense of the use of frozen embryos for research. Now let’s make one thing clear: neither Christina nor her professor (me) agree with the conclusions of her inventive article, but she helps give a sympathetic face to “the other side” in these debates.

These articles, as well as earlier ones, can be found at: CedarEthics Online.
