No stemming the tide?

Forgot to mention that I was listening to the Diane Rehm show on Monday, during our mad rush to get ready to leave, and was glad to hear that on a program about embryo – destructive stem cell research, she had Fr. Tad Pacholczyk of the National Catholic Bioethics Center as a guest. You can find a link to listen to the show here.

Also, over at Ignatius, Valerie Schmalz is keeping us up-to-date on the issue.

I’ve heard Fr. Tad speak in person. Very articulate, and just exudes intelligence.

Fr. Tad is incredible. I hope major TV stations latch onto him as a Catholic Church source. He’s coming to Colorado Springs on the 26th to talk to area doctors. Every diocese should find a way to bring him in for a discussion on the latest bioethical issues.

Isnt Fr TAd the one who previosly wrote about the Pre-Embryo theory early on before becoming a priest? Maybe I am confusing him with someone else.
He is at the NCBC now. I have read much of his testimony in NJ cloning bill and he is quite a speaker.. And of course, not to brag or anything, but he is Polish :-)
