IRRAZABAL, Gabriela. ¿Bioética y Religión?: Apuntes para comprender la imbricación de la bioética y lo religioso en la toma de decisiones en la Argentina contemporánea. Rev. am. med. respir. [online]. 2016, vol.16, n.3, pp.290-297. ISSN 1852-236X.

This article will work on the relationship between bioethics and religion from a sociological perspective. We start analyzing the narratives of origin of bioethics that affrm a strong participation of religious actors of different traditions. Then, we describe a theological - epistemological development called personalist ontologically founded bioethics, developed by Elio Sgreccia a thinker and cardinal of the Catholic Church. Finally, we systematize information related to bioethics training schools linked to religions in Argentina describing that most of these spaces are connected to Catholicism. As discussion we suggest the boundaries of bioethics when promoting coexistence that guarantees freedom of conscience of all individuals in the context of increasing pluralism and diversity (cultural and religious) of contemporary societies.

Keywords : Bioethics; Religion; Laïcité; Theology.
