This text on the field of bioethics and the law is designed for readers with little or no legal background. Detailing how the legal analysis of an issue in bioethics often differs from the ""ethical"" analysis, it covers such topics as abortion, surrogacy, cloning, informed consent, malpractice, refusal of care and organ transplantation. Structured like a legal casebook, it includes the text of almost all the landmark cases that have shaped bioethics. It offers commentary on each of these cases, as well as an introduction to the US legal system, explaining federalism and underlying common law concepts. Students and professionals in medicine and public health, as well as specialists in bioethics, should find this book a useful resource.
