Eminent ethicists of the National Catholic Bioethics Center (Philadelphia) provide an introduction to the Catholic moral tradition and its teachings in the area of medicine and the life sciences. There is no moral tradition that has dealt with these questions as long, as consistently, coherently, and expansively as that of the Catholic Church. The largest provider of non-profit health care in the United States, the Catholic Church has been at the cutting edge of moral reflection on developments in medicine and the life sciences in order to minister more effectively to those who turn to her for assistance.
