In the 21st Century, we are constantly forced to make decisions based on pastoral and ethical considerations. In addition, our considerations are informed by our ever-expanding understanding of bioethics.
Reverend Andrew Dutney believes that bioethics has been left too long to experts - complex decisions about bioethics really belong to those who have been wrestling personally with the moral decision-making all along: the sick and those who care for them.
In this book, Andrew argues that as we attempt to make decisions in light of our own faith and life, we are engaged in bioethics in the most personal of ways. The complexity of this decision-making is particularly evident in the key areas of bioethics: abortion, euthanasia and fertility. Life and death issues are faced on a daily basis by thousands of people throughout the world who are playing God because they must.
