Julian Savilescu is Professor of Practical Ethics at the University of Oxford, Fellow of St Cross College, Oxford, Director of the Oxford Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics, and Head of the Melbourne–Oxford Stem Cell Collaboration. He develops some interesting ethical debate around the implications of cloning, embryonic stem cell research and euthanasia. There are many misconceptions, fallacies and inconsistencies in our understanding of these topics aside from the benefits that can come from them.
One of the strongest objections against this type of research comes from a religious perspective and as a society there is going to be division between peoples beliefs and who's values are going to be imposed on who? Why should those values be imposed on people who dont share similar beliefs, whether I believe or not, I dont object to the building of churches so why should there be any objection to the building of a Centre for Cloning and Euthanasia?
Like architecture these issues affect what people do, how they live their lives and how society develops...
