About this item

This is an updated and revised edition after fifteen years of one of the classic critiques of the modern bioethics movement. The new edition will show how the threats to the equality of human life and the potential for medical discrimination have accelerated since the publication of the first edition. Included in the new version: The Terri Schiavo Case, the spread of euthanasia, potential health care rationing posed by Obamacare, the Brittany Maynard assisted suicide firestorm, and the need to enact conscience laws to ensure that doctors, nurses, pharmacists and other health care protection who do not wish to participate in the intentional taking of human life do not suffer professional discipline, what the author calls "medical martyrdom." Smith also writes about the trend to exploit the body parts and functions of the destitute, what he calls "biological colonialism."
