Ethics in reproductive medicine by David R Bromham ( )
1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The complexity of ethical issues involving unborn children is laid out in this book by leaders in the fields of medicine, theology, philosophy and economics; contributions are also made by representatives of family planning organisations and afflicted patients. The subject of human embryo manipulation springs immediately to mind and is fully discussed here. In addition, a wide range of questions are addressed. What rights do parents have with regards to an embryo or fetus? What ethical dilemmas are posed by the population crisis? Where do professionals stand in the abortion debate? Is it ethical to allocate new technological resources indiscriminantly? The book not only investigates these areas of debate, but also considers the nature of the debate itself: the role that various participants play and the tactics that they use for promoting their arguments. This approach allows you to understand both the arguments involved and the ways in which the various contenders present them
