The National Catholic Bioethics Center

The National Catholic Bioethics Center
conducts research, consultation, publishing and education to promote human dignity in health care and the life sciences, and derives its message directly from the teachings of the Catholic Church.

Some of the resources on the Center’s Web site are for sale or restricted to subscribers, but there are a number of features that are accessible to everyone. Among these are articles from a monthly column called Making Sense out of Bioethics written by Father Tad Pacholczyk, Director of Education at the NCBC, that appears in various diocesan newspapers across the United States. These articles provide concise explanations of the Church's position on bioethics issues.

Also featured on the Web site and freely accessible is Bioethics FAQ's and Pastoral Resources, responses to frequently asked questions to assist individuals facing difficult decisions regarding the care of family members.

Also available are NCBC Resources on Stem Cell Research and Human Cloning.
