Compassionate Bioethics is a project by the Effective Altruism Foundation (formerly GBS Switzerland). It aims to advance the public dialogue about bio-ethical questions. Their stakes often involve great amounts of involuntary suffering, which makes them an opportunity for ethical impact and supports their political priority. Examples are the debates about embryonic stem cell research, pre-implant genetic diagnosis, cloning, organ donation, the right to assisted dying, animal testing and alternative methods, psychoactive drugs, physical and mental enhancement technologies as well as cyborgs (who already exist) and their rights.
