Bioethical Issues: Understanding and Responding to the Culture of Death (Revised and Updated) by John R Ling and published by Day One Publications.
Almost every week the media report a 'new' bioethical issue. Most people are confused and unsure about novel technologies such as saviour siblings, human cloning, three parent IVF and regenerative medicine. Many have not thought through the 'old' bioethical issues of abortion, surrogacy, infanticide and euthanasia. If that is your position, this book, fully revised and updated, is for you.
We now live in a culture of death. Much of modern medicine has gone seriously wrong. In its ethics and practices, it has departed from its historic roots and has therefore become a threat to people. This book does not seek trite comfortable answers. Rather, it develops a rugged bioethical framework, based on principle derived from the Bible and supported by analyses of recent trends in medicine and science. But this book is not a cosy fire-side reading. It wants you out of your chair and doing. It calls for a head-heart-hand response of 'principled compassion' to overcome this culture of death and gain a culture of life.
