About the Book

Over a decade ago the field of bioethics was established in response to the increased control over the design of living organisms afforded by both medical genetics and biotechnology. Since its introduction, bioethics has become established as an academic discipline with journals and professional societies, is covered regularly in the media, and affects people everyday around the globe. In response to the increasing need for information about medical genetics and biotechnology as well as the ethical issues these fields raise, Sheed & Ward proudly presents the Readings in Bioethics Series. Edited by Thomas A. Shannon, the series provides anthologies of critical essays and reflections by leading ethicists in four pivotal areas: reproductive technologies, genetic technologies, death and dying, and health care policy. The goal of this series is twofold: first, to provide a set of readers on thematic topics for introductory or survey courses in bioethics or for courses with a particular theme or time limitation. Second, each of the readers in this series is designed to help students focus more thoroughly and effectively on specific topics that flesh out the ethical issues at the core of bioethics. The series is also highly accessible to general readers interested in bioethics. This volume collects critical essays by leading scholars on issues of justice and unequal access to quality health care, the impact of race and ethnicity in biomedical research and clinical practice, the unethical conduct of underpowered clinical trials, the effects of mandatory parental notification in teenage sexual healthcare, stem cell research on 'spare' embryos, and other crucial areas where moral and ethical dilemmas emerge from new and existing policy and legislation.
About the Author: Thomas A. Shannon is professor of religion and social ethics at Worcester Polytechnic Institute. He is the author of many articles and books in Catholic social thought, bioethics, and genetics. He is co-author with Thomas Massaro of Catholic Perspectives on Peace and War, with James Walter of The New Genetic Medicine, and is the editor of the series Readings in Bioethics for Sheed & Ward.
