Abstract
This book offers healthcare trainees and practitioners alike a comprehensive, usable guide to biomedical ethics today. This text works through questions of moral principles relevant to a diverse and growing number of healthcare professionals. Rather than focus on theory, the text takes an applied, case-study based approach that makes complex ethical issues real and relatable. Updates to this edition include new discussions on reproductive technology and reproductive choice, medical professionalism, and managing error. Also new are thoroughly updated references, expanded theoretical coverage, and case studies that reflect team ethics. This is an ideal text for second-and third-year one-semester ethics courses offered in medical schools, health sciences departments, and nursing programs.

Abstract
Explores many aspects of the high-tech com modification of procreation: the fabulous revenues commercial fertility clinics earn from couples' desperate desire for children and the ensuing conflicts between medical ethics and the profit motive; the premiums paid for sperm and eggs from genetically desirable donors; the possible exploitation of poor, nonwhite and Third World surrogate mothers paid to gestate the spawn of wealthy Westerners; the fine line between modern adoption practices and outright baby selling; and the new entrepreneurial paradigm of maternity, in which the official "mother" simply finances the assemblage of sperm, purchased egg and hired womb and lays contractual claim to the finished infant. Spar considers most of these developments inevitable and not undesirable (they provide kids to parents who want them), but calls for government regulation to curb excesses and protect the interests of all involved. Chapter 3 contains information about surrogacy.

Abstract
Medicine Under the Influence tackles the effects of life-sustaining medical treatment on infants. Through the testimony of doctors and therapists as well as stories told by parents of disabled children, the documentary notes the lack of support available to science's little "miracles." Once saved, the children are often left without the therapy to improve their quality of life and develop to their fullest potential.
