Description - Understanding Medical Law by Brendan Greene
This book gives the reader a flavour of the main issues arising in medical law including the problems of consent to treatment, medical negligence, abortion and whether euthanasia should be legalised. Both the courts and Parliament continue to be kept busy with medical law issues. The removal of organs and tissue from dead children at Bristol Royal Infirmary and Alder Hey Children's Hospital have led to the introduction of the Human Tissue Bill. The struggles of individuals like Diane Blood (who had children using sperm from her dead husband), Dianne Pretty (who wanted her husband to be allowed to help her to die), Natalie Evans (who wanted permission to use her frozen embryos) and others, help to push forward the boundaries of medical law.
