Advancements in medical science and technology inevitably and rightly engender complex ethical and moral questions that confront the patient, physician, family, and society at large. Dr. Rosner, an esteemed academic physician and noted scholar in Jewish medical ethics, presents this compilation of his essays on Jewish teachings and ethical attitudes as they pertain to modern medical issues such as artificial insemination, in-vitro fertilization, genetic engineering, organ transplantation, and extraordinary life support measures. Additional essays elaborate Jewish thought on the age-old bioethical dilemmas of contraception, abortion, euthanasia, and autopsy.
The book is not meant as a unified discourse on theoretical aspects
