Biography

He graduated cum laude with a BA from William and Mary and a PhD from New York University, writing under visiting Australian bioethicist Peter Singer Professor Pence also directs UAB's competitive Early Medical School Acceptance Program EMSAP and taught medical ethics for thirty-four years at the University of Alabama School of Medicine[1] In 2006, Samford University awarded him a Pellegrino Medal for achievement in medical ethics[2] In 2011, he switched from teaching in the medical school to chairing the UAB Department of Philosophy and directing EMSAP[1][3]

His well-known work defending human cloning has labeled him as a rebel in the scientific community[4][5] Some critics, especially GreenPeace of Europe, consider him an apologist for the safety of GM foods[6] As displayed in his many books on human cloning Who's Afraid of Cloning, etc, he is one of the few bioethicists who believes that human cloning should not be banned but rather accepted in modern society as a future tool for creating wanted children In 2001, Pence testified before the US Congress against a bill that would have criminalized all aspects of human cloning[7] His many books, and over 70 op-ed essays, explain his views about assisted reproduction, human cloning, and various topics in bioethics

In 2015, he was invited to write for "American National Biography" the official biography of agricultural pioneer Norman Borlaug, a strong defender of genetically modified food[8]

His textbook, Medical Ethics,[9]is one of the field's standards, was 25 years old in 2015 in its 7th edition[10] and will be in its 9th edition in 2019 At UAB, he won major teaching awards, including the Ingall's and President's[11] In 2010, he coached the UAB team that won the national championship of the Intercollegiate Ethics Bowl[12] He also coached the UAB team that won the national championship of the Bioethics Bowl in 2011 at the National Undergraduate Bioethics Conference NUBC at Duke University[13] and his team won the Bioethics Bowl again at NUBC in 2015 at Florida State University[14]
