The Women’s Bioethics Project Book Club

Welcome to the Women’s Bioethics Project Book Club. Our program is designed to help you understand the direct and profound affect emerging biotechnologies will have on your life. Our goal is to provide the tools you’ll need to come to your own conclusions about what you want laws and regulations to look like.

In short, we’ve created the Women’s Bioethics Project Book Club program to engage, educate, and empower women. We want to make bioethical issues relevant and then provide the support you need to thoroughly examine the issues and then take action to make your voice heard.

The issues to consider are enormous and cover a broad spectrum, from stem cell research, cloning and “designer babies” to physician-assisted suicide and other end-of-life issues.

The time to address these issues is now. We believe the humanities provide an accessible and relevant way to begin the difficult process of engaging on these issues.
