Southern Cross Bioethics Institute (SCBI)

North Plympton, South Australia - Australia

Southern Cross Bioethics Institute is an independent, non-sectarian, autonomous institution committed to research into important bioethical issues affecting the whole community - locally, nationally and internationally. The Institute was established in 1987 in the South Australian capital, Adelaide. Its foundation was part of an initiative by the Southern Cross Care Inc., an independent provider of care and accommodation for Australia's older people.

The Southern Cross Bioethics Institute adheres to universal human values, human rights, and the laws of humanity, including the inviolable and inalienable right to life of every member of the human family, whatever the age, status or ability of that member, from conception to natural death. Since bioethics addresses all kinds of issues faced by society in general, and particularly the very fundamental issues of human life and procreation which have at stake fundamental human rights, dignity and freedom, the Institute represents an effective contribution to the making of public policy in a non-party-political fashion.

The staff of the Institute are involved in continuous bioethical research, writing, and professional consultation on various subjects like reproductive technology, ethical issues in care of the aged, abortion, euthanasia, biotechnology, embryo experimentation, organ donation, resource allocation and many others. The Southern Cross Bioethics Institute is a community resource. We have educational services for individuals, students, institutions, community groups and politicians of all political persuasions. The Institute provides expert comments and submissions to governments, research committees and international forums.
