.- The Bioethics Observatory of St. Vincent the Martyr Catholic University in Spain has launched a new website providing analysis on medical research and developments including human cloning, euthanasia, experimentation with embryos and stem cells.

The new website can be found at www.observatoriobioetica.com and www.ucv.es/observatorio.  Users will have access to news, forums, videos and documentation on medical research.

The purpose of the site is to provide analysis of the advances in medicine, research and bio-technology, proposing concrete actions for professional life,” university officials told the AVAN news agency.

The Observatory provides counseling and continued formation to professionals and others interested in this subject, enabling them to evaluate and address problems related to bioethics.  It also sends out an email newsletter that includes commentary and analysis by experts from St. Vincent the Martyr University and other universities.

The website will also offer users important Church documents on medical research and bioethics, the right to conscientious objection for health care workers, and the key teachings of the magisterium of Benedict XVI.
