Dr. Kyle McKenna: Aborted Fetal Tissues in Vaccines and Medical Research
How do we apply Catholic moral teaching to the the use of fetal tissue from an elective abortion, tissue that could be of value in medical research and that would otherwise be discarded?
Dr. Kyle McKenna, Associate Professor of Biology at Franciscan University of Steubenville, looks at Catholic teaching as it applies in his own research on uveal melanoma and as it applies in the decision to make use of vaccines in his talk entitled “Aborted Fetal Tissues in Vaccines and Medical Research.” Dr. McKenna’s talk was part of the Faculty Research Colloquium at Franciscan University of Steubenville.
