The human embryonic stem cell debate : science, ethics, and public policy ( Book )
9 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 2,748 libraries worldwide
This book offers a foundation for thinking about the many issues involved in human embryonic stem cell research. It considers questions about the nature of human life, the limits of intervention into human cells and tissues, and the meaning of our corporeal existence. The book contains contributions from the Ethics Advisory Board of the Geron Corporation; excerpts from expert testimony given before the National Bioethics Advisory Commission, which helped shape recent National Institutes of Health policy; and original analytical essays on the implications of this research.

Sacred cells? : why Christians should support stem cell research by Ted Peters( Book )
7 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 839 libraries worldwide
Sacred Cells? takes readers through the twists and turns of stem cell development, providing a brief history of the science and an overview of the competing ethical frameworks people use in approaching the heated debate. Each new scientific advance, from the cloning of Dolly the sheep to the use of engineered cells in humans, had to be carefully considered before proceeding. Rejecting the widely held belief that the ethics of stem cell research turn on the moral status of the embryo, the authors carefully weigh a diversity of ethical problems. Ultimately, they embrace stem cell research and the prospect of increased health and well being it offers. --From publisher description

Six theories of justice : perspectives from philosophical and theological ethics by Karen Lebacqz( Book )
4 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 484 libraries worldwide
"There may be no more urgent cry today than that of 'justice' -- and no more frequent accusation than that of 'injustice.' But what is meant when these terms are used? Six Theories of Justice clarifies that question and offers major alternative answers. Dr. Lebacqz surveys three philosophical approaches to justice: John Stuart Mill's utilitarianism, the 'contract' system of John Rawls, and the 'entitlement' views of Robert Nozick. These are followed by analysis of three theological approaches: that of the National Conference of Catholic Bishops, of Reinhold Niebuhr, and of the liberation theologian Jose Porfirio Miranda. A comparison of the effectiveness of each approach in providing direction for facing and dealing with contemporary issues and situations adds to the usefulness of this volume. A lucid and well-structured introduction to recent thinking in social ethics"--Publisher description

Justice in an unjust world : foundations for a Christian approach to justice by Karen Lebacqz( Book )
5 editions published between 1987 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 334 libraries worldwide
"Have we heard the cry for justice that rises from humanity suffering from varieties of injustice: economic, sexual, political, cultural, verbal? Or, what is more, have Christians on occasion, knowingly or unknowingly, acquiesced in - or even contributed to - injustice? By means of powerful and dramatic use of biblical images and models, Dr. Lebacqz sets before us the justice of God and God's call for us to heed the cry of the suffering and to work for justice in an unjust world" -- Amazon.com
