Summary

This volume brings together an unusually broad range of experts from reproductive medicine medical ethics and law to address the important ethical problems in maternal-fetal medicine which impact directly on clinical practice. The book is divided into parts by the stages of pregnancy within which the authors cover four main areas: the balance of power in the doctor-patient relationship and the justifiable limits of paternalism and autonomy; the impact of new technologies and new diseases; disability and enhancement; and difference--to what extent should the clinician respect the tenets of other faiths in a multicultural society.
