Summary
Moreno pulls apart the debates on eugenics, abortion, end-of-life decisions, embryonic stem-cell research, reproductive cloning, chimeras and synthetic biology, among others, carefully reassembling what's at stake for each side. He illuminates intricate threads of history and complex philosophical arguments.--P. [4] of cover
