Watch on YouTube

Recently, EWTN released a video interview recorded last year of our former Education and Research Officer, Michael Wee, who discussed the work of the Anscombe Centre and the vocation of bioethics and bioethical research. You can view the entire interview, with timestamps to subjects, here!

Amongst other things, Michael discussed the history and work of the Anscombe Bioethics Centre, the importance of an ‘affirmative orthodoxy’, the primary role of philosophy in bioethics, authentic as opposed to false notions of freedom and autonomy, bioethical debates in the UK such as abortion and IVF on the one hand and euthanasia and assisted suicide (EAS) on the other, and the Alfie Evans and Charlie Gard cases and how both right ends and means matter in ethics.
