Looks at how Christian beliefs about the sanctity of life should influence modern medical ethics

Blackwell North Amer
Working within a Christian vision of humans as free but finite creatures who are in relationship with God and with one another, Meilaender examines a wide range of bioethical issues - assisted reproduction, abortion, gene therapy and genetic research, prenatal screening, suicide and euthanasia, treatment refusal and decision making, organ donation, and participation in research projects. Meilaender explores the difficulties surrounding each issue and offers a clear statement of how Christians ought to think about each one. Throughout he stresses the importance of care for the weakest members of our community and the hope that we have, despite our inability to eliminate all suffering, because we have a God who suffers with us.
