Overview

A balanced collection of readings that examine the diversity of opinion surrounding current issues in biomedical ethics. This anthology focuses largely on the Canadian perspective, covering the political and social aspects of Canadian access to health care and the distinct nature of Canadian legislation. Nevertheless, it also includes articles from other countries to reflect the general field of bioethics.
