Catholic Bioethics and the Gift of Human Life
"Human life, God's precious gift, is most vulnerable when it comes into the world and when it leaves the realm of time to embark upon eternity".
Never has the gift of human life been more threatened. Euthanasia, in vitro fertilization, genetic counseling, assisted suicide, "living wills", persistent vegetative state, organ transplants...modern science has brought complex bioethical decisions about life into every Catholic household.
Now, Professor William E. May fearlessly tackles these hot-topic issues, examining them in light of papal encyclicals, statements from the United States Bishops, and probing analyses from leading orthodox theologians. In doing so, he offers all Catholics the profound gift of sound guidelines for making moral judgements and ethical choices in a multi-faceted and complex world.
