Designed to be especially useful for students, the materials have been chosen to provide the best, most thoroughly professional writings that reflect strong argumentation on basic questions, and whose very variety requires a response from the reader.-from back cover

With its easy to use format the reader is able to focus on one particular aspect of genetic engineering or to compare and contrast the arguments presented in more than one area. The six different areas included are: Animal Applications, Agriculture, The Human Genome Project, Issues in Research, Ethical Issues, and Cloning.

A call to fidelity : on the moral theology of Charles E. Curran( Book )

6 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A call to fidelity seeks to examine and critically evaluate the contributions that Charles E. Curran has made to the field of Catholic moral theology over the past forty years. It also seeks to assess the development of specific topics in contemporary moral theology to which Curran has made his unique mark, particularly in fundamental ethics, sexual and medical ethics, social and political ethics, and topics related to dialogue with other traditions and approaches to Catholic ethics. Reviewing the many years of his influential writings, thought, and scholarship, fourteen distinguished scholars examine his contributions and the current state of the topics under discussion--which are as far ranging as academic freedom, birth control, gay and lesbian relationships, and feminism. Each contributor also provides a critical evaluation of Curran's work and outlines how these areas will hold or undergo transformation as the church looks toward its relationship with society and culture in the coming decades

Let them go free : a guide to withdrawing life support by Thomas A Shannon( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Let Them Go Free offers families a way to cope with a problem particular to our time: what to do when medical treatment sustains life but does not cure or resuscitate a critically ill loved one. This straightforward and empathic guide helps such families affirm that their choice to remove life support is morally acceptable, warranted, and made in the spirit of love and care for the patient." "Let Them Go Free also includes an ecumenical prayer service to be conducted as life support is withdrawn. Woven with readings and prayers from Hebrew and Christian scripture, the service is intended to give family and friends a moment to express their love for the patient, to say goodbye, and to find a sense of closure as they embark on the first stage of the grieving process."--Jacket
