Buddhism and Bioethics discusses contemporary issues in medical ethics from a Buddhist perspective.
The issues examined include abortion, embryo research and euthanasia.
Drawing on ancient and modern sources, the book shows how Buddhist ethical principles can be applied consistently to a range of bioethical problems.
It is suggested that moral judgements can be objective and that there can be a 'Buddhist view' on ethical issues.
