Abstract

"Designer babies" are frequently reported as being on the horizon, but is it ethical to create such beings? The author explores this dilemma from a legal and ethical perspective and pays tribute to Alan Gewirth's Principle of Genetic Consistency in the process.In this text the author presents a moral critique of the laws governing the creation of "designer babies." Alan Gewirth's Principle of Generic Consistency is used as the starting point for developing a framework, which is then used to critique the legal position in the EU countries (with particular reference to the UK), Canada and the USA. The conclusion the author reaches is that a proper moral response to the issues covered must take account of specified prima facie presumptions, to be applied by legitimately appointed regulatory bodies. The text assesses the adequacy of existing regulatory responses by reference to these presumptions. Also containing detailed appendices summarizing the legal position with regard to abortion and prenatal diagnosis, preimplantation genetic diagnosis, in vitro embryo research, cloning, and germ-line gene therapy in the countries mentioned above, this volume is an indispensable resource for both students and scholars with a keen interest in this highly contested field.

Abstract

While research into techniques of human fertilization and embryology progresses rapidly, crucial moral questions like these have yet to be answered. Churches have failed to influence the debate because of their incomplete understanding of the issues. Divergent views have lessened the impact of their response and have sent confusing messages to the rest of the world. In this thorough and original analysis, Brendan McCarthy higlights the unclear moral basis of laws governing human fertilization techniques, and establishes a convincing foundation for a Christian approach.

Abstract

Le respect de la personne humaine concerne-t-il aussi l'embryon humain ? Nul ne peut demeurer insensible à une telle question dont la réponse conditionne directement la légitimité des pratiques qui touchent cet embryon : la recherche d'une qualification ou à tout moins la détermination d'une protecion minimale sont au cœur d'un débat de société fondamental. Le colloque national pluri-disciplinaire organisé par le CRJO s'est inscrit dans cette démarche. Anthropologues, philosophes, biologistes, médecins, juristes et réprésentant des différentes tendances de pensée se sont penchés ensemble sur ce délicat problème.

Abstract

The Law and Ethics of Medicine: Essays on the Inviolability of Human Life explains the principle of the inviolability of human life and its continuing relevance to English law governing aspects of medical practice at the beginning and end of life. The book shows that the principle, though widely recognized as an historic and foundational principle of the common law, has been misunderstood in the legal academy, at the Bar and on the Bench. Part I of the book identifies the confusion and clarifies the principle, distinguishing it from 'vitalism' on the one hand and a 'qualitative' evaluation of human life on the other. Part II addresses legal aspects of the beginning of life, including the history of the law against abortion and its relevance to the ongoing abortion debate in the US; the law relating to the 'morning after' pill; and the legal status of the human embryo in vitro. Part III addresses legal aspects of the end of life, including the euthanasia debate; the withdrawal of tube-feeding from patients in a 'persistent vegetative state'; and the duty to provide palliative treatment.This unique collection of essays offers a much-needed clarification of a cardinal legal and ethical principle and should be of interest to lawyers, bioethicists, and healthcare professionals (whether they subscribe to the principle or not) in all common law jurisdictions and beyond. The principle of the sanctity of life is key to the law governing medical practice and professional medical ethics. It is also widely misunderstood. This book clarifies the principle and considers how it influences the law governing abortion; 'test-tube' babies; euthanasia; feeding patients in persistent vegetative states; and palliative treatment.

Abstract

Cloning, genetic screening, embryo freezing, in vitro fertilization, surrogate motherhood, Norplant, RU486 - these are the technologies revolutionizing our reproductive landscape, enabling individuals to conceive or to avoid pregnancy and to plan the timing of their offspring, and even control their characteristics, in ways barely imaginable a generation ago. In this wide-ranging account of the reproductive technologies currently available, John Robertson goes to the heart of issues that confront increasing numbers of people - single individuals or couples, donors or surrogates, gays or heterosexuals - who seek to redefine family, parenthood, the experience of pregnancy, and life itself. Through the lens of procreative liberty, he analyzes the ethical, legal, and social controversies that surround each major technology, then determines to what extent individuals should be free to pursue the procedures available and whether government should be authorized to restrict them. Reproductive freedom, Robertson maintains, has traditionally been a right taken for granted. Yet these new technologies, helpful as they may be to many people, carry a price - be it the financial, physical, or emotional strain that in vitro fertilization places on couples or the social danger posed by genetically shaping offspring characteristics. They also open up a multitude of fascinating legal questions: Do frozen embryos have the right to be born? Should parents select offspring traits? May a government make long-acting contraceptives compulsory for welfare recipients? Should a woman have the right to abort so she can provide fetal tissue to others, either altruistically or for financial gain? If one member of a lesbian couple has a child through artificial insemination, does the nonbiological parent have any rearing rights or duties in the event that the relationship ends? Robertson examines the broad range of consequences of each reproductive technology and its possible ethical and legal implications. He establishes guidelines for its use by weighing the chance that the technology may enrich and give meaning to an individual's life, against the harm it may cause the larger community. Arguing for the primacy of reproductive freedom in most cases, Robertson offers a timely, multifaceted analysis of the competing interests at stake for patients, couples, doctors, policymakers, lawyers, and ethicists, and shows how they can best be reconciled.

Abstract

"Reproduction, Ethics, and the Law" addresses some of the most pressing moral and legal quandaries in contemporary society - those revolving around human reproduction. Technology can both limit and assist childbearing. Courts have assigned legal parenthood to genetic parents of children carried to term by women genetically unrelated to them, and courts have also passed over genetic progenitors to assign parenthood to individuals socially related to children. With developments in medical and surgical interventions for foetus', we have also seen court cases holding women responsible for causing prenatal harm, as well as a landmark Supreme Court decision that might well release industry from liability for causing prenatal harm in the workplace. Scientists are able to use tissue from aborted fetuses to substantially alter the quality of life for persons afflicted with progressive, debilitating disease, and they are now able to fertilize and implant in women's wombs eggs harvested from aborted female fetuses. Physicians are able to sustain infants with no hope for characteristically human lives long enough to make their organs available to other infants in vital need; and they are able to perform prenatal diagnoses that encourage elective abortion. This collection of essays adds to the feminist dimension of the public discussion of how these issues should be addressed. The contributors broaden the discussion considerably in focusing on issues beyond abortion and reproductive technologies, bringing together such themes as surrogacy, adoption, and infertility; frozen embryos and fathers rights; RU 486; foetal harm; and industrial health hazards for women. This volume brings together feminist social and philosophical theory with a practical awareness of concrete social problems and an understanding of new technologies. The contributors are Barbara J. Berg, Joan E. Bertin, Joan C. Callahan, Janet Gallagher, Helen B. Holmes, Joan Mahoney, Mary B. Mahowald, Uma Narayan, Christine Overall, Laura Purdy, Mary L. Shanley, Janice G. Raymond, Patricia Smith, and Rosemarie Tong.
