Summary

Gregory Pence helped found the Bioethics field and has published in this area for forty years. In this text his single, authorial voice integrates descriptions of some of the most famous bioethics cases and their issues. The text is the only one that follows cases over decades to tell readers what did, and often, what did not, happen.
