Bioethics Yearbook: Theological Developments in Bioethics, 1990-1992 v. 3
As the field of bioethics has matured, increasing attention is being paid to how bioethical issues are treated in different moral and religious traditions and in different regions of the world. The "Bioethics Yearbook" series provides analyses of how such issues as new reproductive techniques, abortion, maternal-foetal conflicts, care of seriously ill newborns, consent, confidentiality, equitable access, cost-containment, withholding and withdrawing treatment, active euthanasia, the definition of death, and organ tranplantation are being discussed in different religious traditions and regions. Volume three discusses theological developments from 1990-1992 in Anglican, Baptist, Buddhist, Catholic, Continental Protestant, Eastern Orthodox, Hindu, Jewish, Latter-Day Saint, Lutheran, Methodist, Muslim, and Presbyterian traditions.
