There is nothing wrong with your web browser. Do not attempt to refresh your window. There is someone without the last name Archbold posting on the Creative Minority Report. Who am I?
My name is Rebecca Taylor. I am a clinical laboratory specialist in molecular biology which is a fancy way of saying that I am certified to perform genetic testing in humans. For years I have worked in various research and clinical labs and now am taking time off to raise my 4 children.
For the past 6 years, I have been blogging at Mary Meets Dolly. Mary Meets Dolly is, literally, the meeting of the world of genetics and genetic engineering, represented by Dolly the cloned sheep, “mother” of modern biotechnology, and the teachings of the Catholic Church on the sanctity of life, represented by Mary, mother of Christ and the Church.
My focus has always been to help everyday Catholics navigate the maze of science and ethics that modern biotechnology has created. You can read more about the beginnings of my adventure in blogging here.
I like to imagine that for 6 years I have been toiling away on my blog in relative obscurity. But that isn’t entirely true. I am a regular on the Son Rise Morning Show with Brian Patrick, and a frequent contributer to Life News and Catholic Lane. My writing has also been spotted at the National Catholic Register.
And, more importantly, I have been a guest blogger at CMR before. But this time the gentlemen have given me access to post at my discretion. Fools!!! [Insert hand wringing and maniacal laugh here.]
There is one last thing you must know about me. I love the Catholic faith. Through my research into biotechnology I have discovered that our faith is not “backward” or “out of touch” as many in our culture believe.
The Catholic Church teaching on modern
bioethical issues is actually forward
thinking. We Catholics are
blessed that we have a consistent framework in which to guide
us through the ethical labyrinth that we face in this modern society.
And contrary to popular secular belief, this framework can continue to guide
us well into the future.
So nice to meet you Creative Minority readers. I look forward to walking this labyrinth with you!
If you would like a sneak peak of what you can expect, you can read my piece on modern eugenics and the sum of millions of individual choices at the National Catholic Register.
