It is a particular virtue of Birth to Death: Science and Bioethics that it eschews the "professional ethics" turn taken by many volumes in bioethics. In relating bioethical concerns to scientific developments, the editors and the authors whose work they commissioned have sought to engage questions that would bother a general audience. Thus, the volume speaks to readers whether healthy or sick, whether in the health care system or not. It is written about and for us as living, embodied beings who live in the face of the promise and problems presented by technological advances in biology and medicine.
