Product Description

Bioethics: Health Care, Human Rights and The Law begins by defining an ethical community and membership in that community. It addresses the treatment of prisoners, aliens, and sexual predators, as well as pregnancy-related issues. Discussion includes issues such as surrogacy, sterilization, compelled surgery, abortion, assisted reproduction, and the definition of death. The second chapter focuses on the attributes of personhood, including areas of repressed memory, gender and sexual orientation, language, testing, cloning, conscience, and the evolution / creationism debate. The third chapter explores the patient / provider relationship, including conflicts of interest, confidentiality, abuse, informed consent, experimentation, and standards of care. The final chapter deals with choice contexts: maternal-fetal conflict; uses of fetal tissue; self-abuse regarding tobacco and alcohol; AIDS discrimination, reporting, and misconduct; managed care treatment; and DNR orders and physician-assisted suicide.
