Whether a person is a professional bioethicist, a member of a hospital ethics committee, a pastor or counselor, a colleague, a family member, or a friend helping others make bioethical decisions, the work of bioethics can and should be a service of charity, an act of love, where the authentic good of others is the goal. Erica Laethem, from Chapter 1 " Dr. Coors has produced a splendid volume that will be of tremendous assistance to those who study Catholic bioethics. The work surveys key moral problems that face parents, spouses, and those who care for their loved ones and must sometimes make difficult and even heart-wrenching decisions. A wide range of authors provide their unique expertise to all who wish to think deeply, deliberate carefully, and choose wisely on these critically important life issues.
