What the Church teaches — and why — on issues of euthanasia, in vitro fertilization, genetic counseling, assisted suicide, living wills, persistent vegetative state, organ transplants, and more.
“In this revision of his already classic text, William May shows us once again the wisdom of the Catholic Church’s moral tradition in its application to contemporary bioethics. Illuminating and engaging — and with the attention to nuance that marks all of May’s writing.” — Edward J. Furton, M.A., Ph.D. Ethicist and Director of Publications, The National Catholic Bioethics Center
“Since it was first published, Dr. May’s text Catholic Bioethics and the Gift of Human Life has served an irreplaceable role in Catholic moral education. His new revision adds clear systematic treatments of several additional issues of pressing moral concern to the Church and society. Catholic educators everywhere will welcome this excellent revision. I welcome it! — E. Christian Brugger, Associate Professor of Moral Theology, Institute for the Psychological Sciences
“With so much bioethical thinking supporting the ‘culture of death,’ I can think of no better champion of a ‘culture of life’ than Professor William E. May. Professor May has given us a book which is useful not only for its masterful summary of the moral magisterium on bioethics, but also for its treatment of such issues as contraception, artificial reproduction, the care of the dying, human experimentation, and the definition of death and organ transplants.” — Dr. Mark S. Latkovic, Associate Professor of Moral Theology, Sacred Heart Major Seminary
