The upcoming Friday, November 30, 2007 episode of CatholicTV’s live show entitled “This is the Day” will feature an interview with Rev. Tadeusz Pacholczyk, Ph.D. Father Tad, the Director of Education at the National Catholic Bioethics Center, will provide commentary on the recent successes in re-engineering skin cells to perform as stem cells avoiding the moral dilemma associated with embryonic stem-cell research. This is an exciting development in the health care field.
Father Tad will be interviewed by the Director of CatholicTV, Father Robert Reed, and Jay Fadden, General Manager. Also appearing on the show is Joseph Reardon of Por Christo, a non-profit, medical volunteer services organization in the field of international health. It was founded by the Catholic Archdiocese of Boston in response to the 1979 visit to Boston of Pope John Paul II, who challenged the people of Boston to share their abundance with those in need, particularly in Latin America.
