This text begins with an introductory chapter that presents a practical method for ethical analysis of specific cases. That chapter also provides an accessible introduction to the most influential theories of ethics in bioethics, including foundational theories, principlism, natural law, and critical race, feminist, and disability theories. The chapter includes of the relationship between law and ethics, including in matters of conscience. The chapter on Reproduction and Birth includes material on the most recent controversies over access to contraception and abortion as well as coverage of assisted reproductive technologies and maternal-fetal decision making. The chapter on Regulation of Research Involving Human Subjects treats both the federal regulation of research through the Common Rule (including the 2017 final rule and its status in 2018) and the impact of state law (primarily through private litigation over the rights of individuals participating in research).
