July 25, 2003

In 2003 religious scholar and scientist Leon Kass appeared on NOW WITH BILL MOYERS and discussed his recent bible study and his thoughts on bio-ethics.

"I don't think Genesis hands you pearls of wisdom...it gives you stories which, if you ponder them, take you to the deepest layers of our humanity, show you the elements, psychic and social, of human life, in all their moral ambiguity."

Leon Kass M.D., Ph.D., was chairman of the President's Council on Bioethics from 2002 to 2005. He is the Addie Clark Harding Professor in the Committee on Social Thought and the College at the University of Chicago and Hertog Fellow in Social Thought at the American Enterprise Institute.
