Summary

A thoroughly up to date anthology of biomedical ethics that draws on the major scholars in the field to present an overview of the key issues facing health care professionals and consumers of the '90s.

Issues in bioethics, medicine, and healthcare continue to plague us - as patients, as consumers, as citizens. Here, under one cover, are thirty of the most current and perceptive articles, culled from key medical, ethical, philosophical, legal and theological journals. Dr. Shannon once again offers - to healthcare professions and students alike - access to this decade's core bioethics questions, a spectrum of viewpoints, and a wealth of insight. The Issues Abortion. Fetal Tissue Research. Reproductive Technology. Gene Therapy. Death with Dignity. Advance Directives. Physician Assisted Suicide. Clinical Research and Consent. HIV/AIDS. Privacy and Disclosure. Organ Transplants. Healthcare Rationing. The Authors Daniel Callahan. Scott Aaron. Brenda Almond. Carole Ulanowsky. Maura Ryan. Richard McCormick. Mark Lappé. W.
