Ethical Issues in Maternal-Fetal Medicine 2002

19 December 2022

This volume brings together an unusually broad group of experts in reproductive medicine, medical ethics and law to address important ethical issues in maternal-foetal medicine that have a direct impact on clinical practice. The book is divided into sections according to the stages of pregnancy, within which the authors discuss four main areas: the balance of power in the doctor-patient relationship and the legitimate limits of paternalism and autonomy, the impact of new technologies and new diseases, disability and the question of the degree to which the clinician should respect the dogmas of other faiths in a multicultural society.
