As Hsien-Hsien Lei points out, the Vatican has updated its list of deadly sins; there are now 14 instead of the original seven. According to the UK's Metro, the new sins include: genetic experimentation, tampering with the order of nature, pollution, social injustice, causing poverty, excessive wealth, and drug abuse. Bishop Gianfranco Girotti, head of the Apostolic Penitentiary, said, "Today there are various new sins which concern the rights of the individual and society and above all these are in the field of bioethics."
