Whose View of Life? by Jane Maienschein

Book Description

Saving lives versus taking lives: These are the stark terms in which the public regards human embryo research - a battleground of extremes, a war between science and ethics. Such a simplistic dichotomy, encouraged by vociferous opponents of abortion and proponents of medical research, is precisely what Jane Maienschein seeks to counter with this book.
