If the body doesn’t matter, and if our biology isn’t us, then why would we object to a policy that says the following: when women come into the hospital or birthing center and have babies, if they have a baby, they get to go home with a baby. But since the body doesn’t matter, and biological reality doesn’t matter, therefore biological relations can’t matter. So why should a mom go home with her own baby? Why not send every mom who contributes a baby home with a baby? If 15 babies are born this weekend, 15 moms go home with 15 babies chosen randomly.While the lecture itself was open to the public, Trinity students within the bioethics program spoke to Dr. George in an additional Q&A session after the lecture. Opportunities to ask questions to those who are respected in the field are essential for students. Stephen Largent, BA/MA Bioethics ’23, said that “for students such as myself who are new to the field, the Kilner Lectures give me the ability to interact with experts in the field that I would not have the opportunity to interact with otherwise.” The Kilner Bioethics Lectureship and the broader Spring Bioethics Colloquium series of which it is a part are just some of the many activities and opportunities for students to learn about and engage with the pressing ethical issues of our day in medicine, science, and technology through the Bioethics Degree Program in TGS along with the work of The Center for Bioethics & Human Dignity, a leading Christian bioethics research center here at Trinity.
