Description:
Stem cell research presents considerable ethical challenges for scientists, policy makers and the wider community. In response to the debate prompted by European Union (EU) funding of embryonic stem cell research, the Irish Council for Bioethics appointed a rapporteur group in July 2006 to consider the scientific, ethical and legal questions emerging from this field of research. Mindful of the diversity of ethical views held by individuals and members of the various communities living in Ireland, the Council was eager to consult stakeholders and the general public prior to deliberating on the subject. The rapporteurs met with several interested parties from the fields of law, science, medicine and theology, as well as prolife and patient advocacy groups. The Council then invited the Irish public, through local as well as national press and radio, to express its views on stem cell research by completing a questionnaire and submitting comments online or by post. An information leaflet, outlining the scientific basics of stem cell research, was made available to accompany the questionnaire. Over 2,000 individuals responded to this public consultation and the Council would like to express its gratitude for this effort. which greatly benefited its considerations.
