Product Description

THE VALUE OF HUMAN LIFE- Contemporary Perspectives in Jewish Medical Ethics
Edited by Dr. Refoel Guggenheim, Leonardo Leupin, MA., Dr. Yves Nordmann and Dr. Raphael Patcas

As medicine and science advance to new heights, the question of how much human life is valued rises to critical importance. This book is a compilation of fascinating lectures delivered at the first International Conference on Jewish Medical Ethics in Switzerland in 2008. Leading medical and religious experts in the field share their thoughts on such important topics as preimplantation genetic diagnosis, stem cell research, organ transplants, brain death, pallitive care and triage in Jewish law.
