Re-creating Medicine: Ethical Issues at the Frontiers of Medicine

Portada
Rowman & Littlefield, 2007 - 207 páginas
In this important new book Gregory E. Pence looks at issues on the frontiers of medicine including gene therapy to produce 'brave new babies,' cloning, human eggs and embryos for sale, and experiments on human embryos. Pence argues that the conservatism of the medical establishment, the bioethics community, and the public at large has created shibboleths that impede improvements in our quality of life.
