Item description for The Challenge of Reproductive Medicine at Catholic Universities: Time to Leave the Catacombs by Ivo Brosens...
New technologies, developing at an unbelievable pace, have profoundly changed many areas of reproductive medicine including fertility control, infertility treatment, embryology, prenatal diagnosis and fetal surgery. These fields of modern reproductive medicine are all flourishing at Catholic universities in the Low Countries, Belgium and Holland. However, contraceptive techniques, assisted reproductive technologies, preimplantation genetic diagnosis and embryonic stem cell research are deeply dividing Catholic universities around the world. Are Catholic universities in the Low Countries heading silently towards a schism with Rome? Or is modern reproductive medicine based on personalist ethics and practiced at progressive Catholic universities compatible with the Catholic doctrine?

Not exactly what I was looking for Aug 21, 2009
It does not provide the philosophical reasons to support the encouragement of practice of modern reproductive medicine in Catholic Universities. It just provided a summary of the history at that particular university. How they succeeded, is a mystery.
