Contemporary Catholic Health Care Ethics

In chapter 2 of Contemporary Catholic Health Care Ethics, Kelly states that “Catholic moral theology has traditionally argued that ethics (what we ought to do) must be based on anthropology (who we are)” (p. 11).  Who are we according to Kelly’s Christian anthropology, and why is his description of “human dignity,” found in chapter 3, so crucial to his understanding of “who we are?” Moreover, what are the implications of this anthropology for health care (see chapter 4)? In preparing your response, also include the insights you have gained from reading National Catholic Bioethics Center, “Moral Teaching Serves the Human Person”.
