Father Tad Pacholczyk will appear in an interview on the CatholicTV Talk Show “This is the Day” on Friday, March 13th.
In August 2001, funding for stem cell research was limited because of "fundamental questions about the beginnings of life and the ends of science." This week, President Obama overturned the previous administration’s policies. Father Tad is the author of the The Ten Great Myths in the Debate Over Stem Cell Research which can be read at the following website: http://www.ncbcenter.org/10Myths.pdf .
Father Tad will discuss this issue on the show. Father Tad holds a doctorate in neuroscience from Yale University and is now the Director of Education at the National Catholic Bioethics Center in Philadelphia. Father Tad also has 4 undergraduate degrees in molecular and cellular biology, chemistry, biochemistry and philosophy --and two degrees in advanced theology from the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome.
Father Tad will reiterate the Catholic Stance on life which is stated in paragraph 2271 of the Catechism: “Since the first century the Church has affirmed the moral evil of every procured abortion…… You shall not kill the embryo by abortion and shall not cause the newborn to perish………. God, the Lord of life, has entrusted to men the noble mission of safeguarding life, and men must carry it out in a manner worthy of themselves. Life must be protected with the utmost care from the moment of conception: abortion and infanticide are abominable crimes.”
Father Tad’s interview can be seen on Friday, March 13th live at 10:30AM (EST)
