Leon Kass, a Bioethics Legend, Steps Down

Nigel M. de S. Cameron, Christianity Today, September 21, 2005.


While Kass’s tenure has been stormy (the mainstream press has alternated between ignoring and misrepresenting the council’s work), his achievement has been unique. Under his guidance, the council—a much more diverse body than most Americans have been led to believe)—has issued more reports that take human life and human dignity seriously than the rest of the mainstream bioethics world put together.
