Progressive Bioethics?

A recent posting invited progressive bioethics scholars to participate in a private briefing at the upcoming ASBH summer conference in Albany. But it begs the question of “what do you mean by progressive?” The Center for American Progressive has done an inspired job of defining what they call “timeless progressive principles: human dignity, critical optimism, equity and social justice.” The board of WBP would add explicit support for women’s reproductive freedom (our mission states we are pro-choice and pro-science.) How this all translates into public policy is our challenge. We hope you’ll join us.
