  • BioEdge: Ben Carson: the candidate from bioethics
    reproductive technologies like in vitro fertilization and the prospect that while preventing suffering they might also undermine human dignity Carson was a member of the bioethics council when they issued a report on embryonic stem cell research in 2005 At that time conservatives were hoping for an alternative to the destruction of embryos in laboratories that wished to obtain valuable stem cells that might help scientists understand the origins of disease and how to use those cells for new treatments In 2008 presidential candidate John McCain got in trouble with social conservatives for failing to oppose human embryonic stem cell research Carson is a keen observer a quality that served him well as a surgeon who has to appreciate what is happening to the body on the table while he is operating He was perceptive enough to observe the important social currents swirling around bioethics As a surgeon he also has a quality usually associated with the current president that he would like to replace audacity Anyone who cuts open another human being to heal them has to have a lot of that not to mention the audacity required to think he should be president of the United States Yet this perceptive and audacious surgeon wraps himself in a gentle and firm demeanor and gifted hands that understandably inspired awe in the operating room and makes him attractive to many voters Just now a new bioethics debate is giving Carson a golden opportunity if it comes up in a debate The National Academies along with science organizations around the world are discussing the use of new technologies that can redesign or edit the genes in embryos Should human beings use the power of science to shape the genetics of future generations No other candidate is so well positioned to adopt
