Embrión: Una Defensa de la Vida Humana

Rialp

The authors eschew religious arguments and make a purely scientific and philosophical case that the fetus, from the instant of conception, is a human being, with all the moral and political rights inherent in that status.

Embrión: Una Defensa de la Vida Humana

Robert P. George and Christopher Tollefsen, Embrión. Una defensa de la vida humana, Rialp, 2012, 237pp.

This book is the Spanish translation of Embryo: A Defense of Human Life, by Robert P. George and Christopher Tollefsen. Originally published by Doubleday in 2008, and rereleased in 2011 in a second edition, Rialp now offers it in Spanish.

The book, which considers the nature and rights of human embryos, argues against embryonic stem cell research of any kind and summarizes scientific alternatives to such research.  

Right-to-life arguments are often based explicitly on moral and religious grounds. In Embryo, the authors eschew religious arguments and make a purely scientific and philosophical case that the fetus, from the instant of conception, is a human being, with all the moral and political rights inherent in that status. As such, stem cell research that destroys a viable embryo represents the unacceptable taking of a human life.”


The work was financially supported by STI and co-sponsored by the Witherspoon Institute. You can buy the book at
