Summary
Perspectives on bioethics are morally and ethically complex. Even greater complexity comes into the question when the views of individuals and institutions are based on religious beliefs. With contributions from a number of religious leaders, this video examines various perspectives on contraception, IVF, abortion, euthanasia, stem cell research, and animal testing through the eyes of the Islamic, Christian, and Buddhist faiths.

Summary
Americans today pay far more for health care while having among the lowest life expectancies and highest infant mortality of any affluent nation. Gutmann and Moreno explain how bioethics came to dominate the national spotlight, leading and responding to a revolution in doctor-patient relations, a burgeoning world of organ transplants, and new reproductive technologies that benefit millions but create a host of legal and ethical challenges. They address head-on the most fundamental challenges in American health care, while exploring the American paradox of wanting to have it all without paying the price. -- adapted from jacket.
