Culture of Death

Book

Wesley J. Smith shares his findings on modern bioethics in this highly readable book after a teenage boy named Christopher was left to die after he acquired a disability in a car accident. Smith goes behind-the-scenes of the American healthcare system to show how 'the sanctity of life' is being eroded by bioethicists and others. For example, he argues the very real threats to the welfare of patients and society's most vulnerable, through the invention of states such as "irreversible coma" and dehydration of people with disability by having their tube-supplied food and water withheld. Smith implores that we must embrace a new bioethics of human rights if we are to maintain the sanctity of life. These issues are of current and universal importance. Keyword: Ethics
