Taking Life & Making Life (Part 2)
In this session, Dr. Eppinette discusses the ethical challenges regarding "ordinary care" and "extraordinary care" with end-of-life cases. He then transitions to issues of reproduction and new advances in technology in this area that raises ethical questions.

Faking Life or AI and Robots and Cyborgs, Oh My! (Part 3)
In this session, Dr. Eppinette showcases the challenges involved with robotics and artificial intelligence. As robots, cyborgs and artificial intelligence become more sophisticated and complex, how should the Church respond? He discusses "transhumanism," the idea that humans haven't reached the end of their development and are on the cusp of a radical new transitionary phase into a new species.
