Website Review: Mary Meets Dolly: A Catholic's Guide to Genetics, Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology

A review based on: http://www.marymeetsdolly.com

Description

Mary Meets Dolly: A Catholic's Guide to Genetics, Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology is a personal website published by a clinical laboratory specialist in molecular biology at a Catholic hospital, who also has an excellent knowledge of the Faith. Here you will find information about stem cell research, cloning, genetic testing, and more, all in light of the Church's teaching on the sanctity of human life. The main feature of this site is a database of articles written by the webmaster. They are all informative as well as theologically sound, providing technical scientific information in layman's terms so as to be accessable to all. This is a good way for Catholics to learn about and keep up-to-date on these very important life issues.
