Catholic Moral and Ethical Teaching about Genetics and Bio-ethics

“…I have today set before you life and prosperity, death and doom. If you obey the commandments of the Lord your God, which I am enjoining on you today, loving him, and walking in his ways, and keeping his commandments, statutes, and decrees, you will live and grow numerous, and the Lord your God will bless you …. If, however, you turn away your hearts and will not listen, but are led astray and adore and serve other gods, I tell you now that you will certainly perish …. I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. Choose life, then, that you and your descendants may live, by loving the Lord your God, heeding his voice, and holding fast to him.” Deut 30:15-20 (NAB)
