Embryo as Person: Buddhism, Bioethics and Society
Posted December 29, 2014 7:49 PM
This is a collection of Toronto Star Columns written by the Author. Among the topics covered are Abortion, Celebacy, Cloning, Death and dying, Euthanasia, Homosexuality, Meditatio, Organ donation, Sex, soul, etc. 

My attempt in each of these short pieces is to give the reader a quick glance at the thorny socio-ethical issues of the day, from abortion to homosexuality, from the perspective of the Buddhadhamma (Buddha’s Teachings). All but three written for the Toronto Star, they have been pulled together here for the primary reason that there isn’t much written in the area, and certainly not within a Canadian context. In putting them together, an attempt has been made to provide some of the contexts the reader may not be familiar with. It is our hope that you will find the material both useful and relevant. Sharing them with others would be a meritorious act. Download the article below..
