Peter Singer,Princeton University
"The Prenatal Person is a welcome contribution to dialoguebetween adherents of Christian and secular approaches tocontroversial bioethical issues about the beginning of human life.It is refreshing to find a Catholic scholar addressing these issuesin a way that does not rely heavily on religious teachings thatonly a Catholic could be expected to accept. This is a book I willrecommend to my students, so that they can consider a reasonedapproach that is very different to my own."
The Tablet
"...there are many useful insights and The PrenatalPerson is helped by attention to detail in medical matters."
