9780521435888: Embryo Experimentation

New developments in reproductive technology have made headlines since the birth of the world's first in vitro fertilization baby in 1978. But is embryo experimentation ethically acceptable? What is the moral status of the early human embryo? And how should a democratic society deal with so controversial an issue, where conflicting views are based on differing religious and philosophical positions? These controversial questions are the subject of this book, which, as a current compendium of ideas and arguments on the subject, makes an original contribution of major importance to this debate. Peter Singer is the author of many books, including Practical Ethics (CUP, 1979), Marx (Hill & Wang, 1980), and Should the Baby Live? (co-authored with Helga Kuhse, Oxford U.P., 1986).

Review:

"...an excellent blend of the ethical and legal conundrums raised by the topics, based upon the most current scientific knowledge and processes involved." Robert C. Cefalo, The Hastings Center Report

"I hope anyone who is going to have to vote on legislation [related to embryo experimentation] in the near future will read all of this book, and consider it thoroughly. It is, both factually and in terms of values, the most clear, comprehensive and up-to-date consideration of embryo experimentation yet to appear, and written with great authority." Mary Warnock

"...a useful introduction, particularly to the scientific and political/legal dimensions of embryo experimentation." Thomas G. Walsh, International Journal on the Unity of the Sciences
