Inhaltsangabe: This book contributes to new directions in medical ethics by using recent philosophical theories, such as phenomenological, deconstruction, and post-structuralism, and extends philosophical analysis to allow for the influences of politics, cultural difference, and history on ethics. The author views AIDS from several different perspectives over a period of years and addresses questions often given little attention: what are the ethical issues for women with AIDS? How has AIDS phobia become a public health issue? What ought to be society's responsibility toward children with AIDS? New ground is broken in reproductive technology by examining unusual issues in ways that illuminate current debates on women's reproductive rights, such as should brain-dead pregnant women be sustained on life-support, and should pregnancy require women's bodies or would artificial uteri be acceptable?
