Harvard Medical School Center for Bioethics member, Louise P. King, and Isabelle C. Band published a new book, “Case Studies in the Ethics of Assisted Reproduction.” It is the first of its kind to gather cases in reproductive bioethics and ask experts from clinical ethics, law, and history to comment. Written with a wide audience in mind, the book is accessible enough for college-level learners but in depth enough for post-doctoral audiences. King and Band hope it makes this difficult area of ethics more accessible, and plans are actively underway for an expansion and second edition .
“Isabelle has been my mentee since she was in college at Harvard. She’s now in medical school at NYU. We’ve worked together all these years to put this book forward. It’s a great story of how a mentor/mentee relationship can really have terrific rewards for both people,” said King.
Louise P. King, MD, JD, is an assistant professor of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Biology at Harvard Medical School and a surgeon within the Division of Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery at Brigham and Women’s Hospital.
The book is available for purchase on Springer Link, and accessible through many institutions.
