Welcome! Many medical caregivers desire to maintain a personal and professional posture consistent with a respect for life, but the sheer variety of Life Issues and the ambiguous legal status surrounding some of them can make it difficult to develop a logically coherent and personally satisfying ethical “code” in this regard.

MeRLO seeks to add clarity by promoting civil discussion about these Life Issues in the context of invited presentations, small group meetings, and recommended readings. Join the movement, we are glad you are here!

Of particular interest: end-of-life care, physician-assisted suicide, elective abortion, human embryonic stem cell research, human cloning, and the status of human embryos in reproductive medicine, defining human death & the ethical procurement of human organs for transplantation, direct or indirect use of fetal human cells and/or products therefrom as medical therapeutics.
