Abstract

Discussing the ethics of assisted reproduction, this monograph covers such issues as embryo freezing and surrogate motherhood. Feminist and international perspectives on assisted reproduction are also given.In vitro fertilization, embryo freezing and surrogate motherhood have promised liberation from the procreative destinies consigned to us by nature and held out the prospect of parenting for many infertile couples and individuals. Yet technological breakthroughs in assisted reproduction are also haunted by the spectre of a Huxleyan Brave New World, with its chilling vision of mass-production reproduction, and have forced individuals and society to address perennial questions about the quest for parenthood, the kinds of family bonds - genetic, biological, or social - we value, and the balance between private choices and societal responsibility. This volume of essays and case studies reprinted from the Hastings Centre Report illumines the difficult value choices imposed on us by the powers and possibilities of the new reproductive technologies from a variety of philosophic, policy and cultural perspectives.

Abstract

This book illuminates issues in medical ethics revolving around the complex bond between healer and patient, focusing on friendship and other important values in the healing relationship. Embracing medicine, philosophy, theology, and bioethics, it considers whether bioethical issues in medicine, nursing, and dentistry can be examined from the perspective of the healing relationship rather than external moral principles. Distinguished contributors explore the role of the health professional, the moral basis of health care, greater emphasis on the humanities in medical education, and some of the current challenges facing healers today.
