The President's Council on Bioethics

Late last year, the President's Council on Bioethics was "created to advise the President on bioethical issues related to advances in biomedical science and technology." The council's Web site allows the public to access information regarding the activities of this council. The site provides transcripts of council sessions organized by date and by topic; a full report regarding human cloning dated July 2002; links to similar bioethics councils of other governments; background information in the form of staff working papers; and, interestingly enough, works of fiction such as Nathaniel Hawthorne's "The Birth Mark." While this site does not provide any actual scientific information per se, it is an important resource for familiarizing oneself with the ongoing debate regarding sensitive biomedical research issues in the US, as well as for understanding the Bush administration's general disposition toward these issues. The Search our Site feature is currently under construction. This site is also reviewed in the August 23, 2002 Scout Report.
