Bioethics conference presentation

On April 5, 1995, M. Victor Westberg, Manager of Committees on Publication for The Mother Church, appeared at the bioethics conference on "Rights of Children to Make Health Care Decisions." He was part of a four-member panel on "Religious and Cultural Treatment Decisions in Children." The conference was sponsored by the Center for Bioethics at the University of Pennsylvania, and the invitation was issued by Arthur Caplan, Ph.D., director of the center. Here is the essence of Mr. Westberg's talk.

Bible stories for centuries have been a staple of our Western civilization. They not only speak to how children make adult-like decisions, but show how they are capable, by their example, of imparting a greater sense of dominion over adversity for everyone.
