2014 Film Festival - The Moral Status of the Embryo

Date: 21st Nov ' - 23rd Nov '
Location: Filmhouse, 88 Lothian Road, Edinburgh EH3 9BZ [ Map ]

Is the human embryo just a pile of cells or is it a person like any other human being who has been born? What are the ethical consequences of each position for society? Will a consensus on this issue ever be reached? What is the definition of a person anyway?

This festival, the first in the world to look at the moral status of the embryo, will seek to answer some of these questions. At the end of each screening, a discussion will take place between the audience and a panel of invited experts in bioethics, science, law, medicine and politics.
