More Vatican Follow-Up

Pope Benedict XVI again waded into the science-and-religion debate yesterday when he said that embryonic stem cell research, artificial insemination, and attempts at human cloning had broken "the barrier protecting human dignity." Speaking before a meeting of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, a Vatican office, the pope dismissed the idea that the Church is an obstacle to scientific progress, but said that it wants the future of science to be based on "ethical-moral principles." —Heather Wax
