Dear Friends,

2010 marks the tenth anniversary of the CBC! We are preparing for some special projects and events throughout the year to commemorate this exciting milestone, and we need your help now more than ever.

  • We will be holding a party and silent auction on September 25, 2010, with very special CBC guests present for you to meet and enjoy the evening with. More details will be available soon.
  • We are making plans to publish our first book of highlights from the many articles and resources weíve published over the last decade — a great resource tool for any library.
  • And we are about to release our second documentary film, Eggsploitation — a revealing investigation of the booming business of human egg donation.
  • We all know how powerful film media can be; and the CBCís productions are no exception. Last month, Lines That Divide: The Great Stem Cell Debate was an official selection of the California Independent Film Festival, and it continues to be be shown all over the world — on television, in theaters, on college campuses, in churches — educating the public on the ethical issues surrounding stem cell research. And as we move forward with the production and release of Eggsploitation, we will educate young women, assist legislators who seek to pass laws to protect young women, and push back against the scientific human cloning agenda which depends so heavily on human eggs. If you are interested in purchasing an advance copy of this film, visit Let us know if you want to organize a showing in your community!

    The last ten years have provided a deep ethical foundation to build upon in the future. Please visit our website and read . The CBC is commited to our important role in shoring up the ethics of scientific and medical progress.

    You are an essential part of the CBCís work — your financial support enables us to pave new paths in the field of bioethics and prepare for sound ethical engagement in the next ten years of biotechnological advance. Together, we can stand in the gap between the promise of great scientific discovery and the potential destruction and disregard of human life. Your gift today will contribute to the work at hand, and, ultimately, to the future of human dignity and the sanctity of life.
