- By Sandra Johnson. Published by Thomson West. 2009. 1st.
"This work provides a concise analysis of areas in which the law has addressed issues in bioethics. Topics include assisted reproductive techniques and family-making, limitations on reproduction (including abortion, contraception, and sterilization), the role of ethical and religious beliefs of health care professionals, the definition of death, end-of-life decision making (including physician-assisted death), genetics, research involving human subjects (including issues related to conflicts of interest), organ transplantation, limitations on coercive public health regulation, the operation of ethics committees, and other emerging topics. The book provides an excellent introduction to this area as well as useful support for students." - from the publisher
