Description

This book explores the ethical challenges posed at the cutting edge of biomedical science and health care. Art Caplan, one of the nation's leading theorists, clearly outlines the newest technologies and developments in medical research, then thoughtfully sorts through the potential ethical, legal, and social repercussions. He examines a huge number of the most current and controversial subjects--abortion, cloning, managed care, needle exchange programs to prevent the transmission of HIV, and much more. Art Caplan makes his mark as one of today's leading ethicists with this powerful exploration of the moral dilemmas humanity must face in the advancement of biomedical science and health care. After outlining the newest technologies and developments in medical research, he thoughtfully sorts through the potential ethical, legal, and social repercussions of cloning, abortion, assisted suicide, and needle exchange programs. No other book combines such probing analytical clarity.
