Exploding Bombs and Defining the Moral Community
 From Aegean Waters to New York’s Stem Cell Board
 Bioethics and Humanities
Near Athens, in 1984, at a conference on life, suffering and death, Professor Gorovitz addressed 200 representatives from around the world. A Muslim physician who disagreed with him responded by speaking of exploding a bomb at him. That event led to his being appointed to important health policy positions by each of the last five NY governors, including membership on the Empire State Stem Cell Board which oversees New York’s $600 million initiative in stem cell research. The Boston Marathon bombing prompts an updating of the final portions of this remarkable story, from which you will gain new insights into how we understand causation, community and moral responsibility.
