Mary Anne Urlakis discusses the Sacred Dignity of Embryonic Human Life with Laura Elm

Episode 45 of WCAT Radio’s “Inter Vitam et Mortem: Between Life and Death: Interviews and Discussion with a Catholic Bioethicist” is broadcast in conjunction with the Institute for the Theological Encounter Between Science and Technology (ITEST) and an upcoming webinar entitled “The Moral Arguments in the Embryo Adoption Debate.”

Show host and Co-Founder of the Dignitas Personae Institute for Nascent Human Life, Dr. Mary Anne Urlakis, discusses the sacred dignity of embryonic human life with Laura Elm, the Founder and President of Sacred Heart Guardians and Shelter. Sacred Heart Guardians and Shelter is a charitable organization, guided by a profound respect for the dignity of every human person from the first moment of existence and founded with the mission of providing corporal and spiritual care for the youngest and smallest members of the human family. To this end, Sacred Heart Guardians and Shelter facilitates a dignified, prayerful, Catholic burial for embryos who die in Artificial Reproductive Technology (ART) laboratories. In this episode, Mary Anne and Laura discuss the fragility of embryonic human life and the necessity of treating each and every human person with the sacred dignity requisite to being created in the Image and Likeness of God.
