CWN Editor's Note: The Commission of the Bishops’ Conferences of the European Union (COMECE) has expressed concerns about draft regulations on the use of “substances of human origin,” proposed to the European Parliament.

A statement from COMECE stressed that “human life is not just a ‘substance of human origin,’” and argued against the exploitation of embryonic and fetal life. Every human life “possesses its own dignity, right, and independent right to protection,” the statement said.
