Shelves: ethics
There was some valuable historical perspective offered here, but it was a brief overview at best. Good for an introduction but not much more.

[Audio:] Not terrible, a half-way decent entry into the subjects. Problem I have is in the fact that 1) it's a LOT to try to cover and do it justice and 2) the conservative "voices" that David quoted struck me as kind of limited. As a pro-lifer I may be hyper-sensitive to a liberal bias, but I thought that he didn't delve deeply into pro-life arguments. It would have been nice to hear from a James Dobson or John Paul II.

David James explores the moral and philosophical debates on all sides of abortion and euthanasia (including suicide). I can honestly say that it was incredibly balanced - which I respect very much. I walk away from this book with so much food for thought.
