Gonzaga University College of Arts and Sciences Presents

Theological Bioethics: A Feminist, Liberationist, and Global Optic

Dr. Christina A. Astorga, of the Religious Studies Department at Gonzaga University

Theological Bioethics holds that a Christian theological commitment to social justice should seek to shape public policy and social practices in bioethics, posing a critique to the ethos of exclusion, privilege, and profit. This talk addresses bioethical issues and problems within a theological framework from a feminist, liberationist, and global optic. It contextualizes these issues and problems in situations of marginalization, in a world where lives are interlocked, even amidst plurality and diversity.
