Description

This volume was written in response to the recently publicized concerns of the National Childbirth Trust and others about the ethical questions raised by pre-natal testing. Features include: practical advice on the tests offered and what they can tell expectant mothers; what choices they can necessitate, and who should make the decisions, parents or doctors?; addresses an area of increasing public concern about a woman's right to choose; and suggestions that tests should not be offered where no treatment is available. Pete Moore is the author of "Born Too Soon" and "Trying For A Baby".show more
