Dr. Reginald Finger Joins Spring MedSFLA Tour to Discuss Embryo Adoption

Dr. Reginald Finger of Colorado Springs will be joining Medical Students for Life on our 2013 Spring Tour. He will be speaking on the topic of Embryo Adoption. Embryo Adoption is the process of receiving donated remaining frozen embryos from a family who had them created via in vitro fertilization for their own family building. While the popularity of in vitro fertilization continues to grow, the IVF industry is largely unregulated, controversial and many ethical questions abound. Such as: What should be done with the unused human embryos? Should couples be allowed to destroy their extra human embryos? Embryo adoption may be one alternative in saving countless lives from being discarded or destroyed in research.

Reginald Finger, MD, MPH received the Doctor of Medicine degree in 1981 and a Master of Public Health in Epidemiology in 1983 from the University of Washington in Seattle.  For much of his career, Dr. Finger has worked in disease prevention and health promotion in state and local health departments.  Since August 2006 Dr. Finger has lectured and researched for the National Embryo Donation Center, headquartered in Knoxville, Tennessee, the nation’s only national, non-profit, clinic-based embryo adoption agency – founded with the assistance of the Christian Medical and Dental Associations (CMDA).  Dr. Finger has been a CMDA member since 2004.  He has found embryo adoption to be an excellent issue to illustrate pro-life bioethical principles, and in addition to discussing the issue in medical settings, has used this opportunity to travel to and minister on Christian college campuses as well.
