Christians and Bioethics
SPCK, Jan 1, 2000 - Bioethics - 84 pages
An examination of issues in bioethics from the perspective of Christianity. The contemporary world is facing some very difficult ethical issues in regulating the possibilities resulting from bioethical research - cloning, genetic engineering of food, organ transplantation, reproductive medicine and euthanasia. There is a need for informed debate, and for a Christian contribution - yet there are surprisingly few books setting out the issues. This book provides a thorough guide to the subject.
