Christianity & Bioethics: Confronting Clinical Issues
It's difficult to see a family member suffer, yet is it right to take actions to relieve that suffering which might hasten their death? Is human cloning something we should allow to happen? Should doctors be allowed to assist patients who choose to die rather than continue to live in pain or with a disease? As medical technology improves, the challenges to your ethical and religious convictions will certainly increase. Sooner or later, you will find yourself making medical choices that have faith implications. This book will help you begin the process of determining what you believe God would want you to do in the face of these challenging situations. This is a must read book!
