In language that is theologically informed, straightforward, and clear Bioethics discusses a wide range of pressing bioethical issues, including assisted reproduction, abortion, care for the dying, euthanasia, human experimentation, embryo research, and more. This third edition of Gilbert Meilaender's primer in Christian bioethics retains the basic structure of the first two editions while updating information throughout. New to the third edition is a discussion of the need to protect Christian conscience in the practice of medicine. Bioethics continues to provide a much-needed discussion of how Christian vision and central Christian beliefs can shape our thinking about key issues in bioethics. It offers a perspective from which we can appreciate both the blessings and the limits of modern medicine.
