Bioethics examines and challenges existing and future practices in health care, reproduction, genetics, biotechnology, and biomedical research. This volume includes many of the most important and influential articles that have set the agenda for key debates in bioethics or have changed the face of those debates. The articles address ethics in clinical practice, issues at the outset of life, reproductive ethics, end-of-life issues, professional integrity and the goals of medicine, ethics and the pharmaceutical industry, research ethics and bioethics and public policy. The volume demonstrates what is at stake in many current controversies in bioethics and shows the breadth and richness of work in the field.
