Review:

«The »bioethics establishment« will not like what Father Barry has to say, but everyone interested in the general subject will be much better informed after reading and thinking about what he has to say. Nobody does a better job than Father Barry of cutting through the doubletalk and doublespeak that has cluttered this area.» (Yale Kamisar, The University of Michigan Law School)
«...(Barry's) book is an analytical and insightful exploration of the intersection of medical ethics and civil rights which provides powerful ammunition in the struggle against discrimination on the basis of age and disability. Most importantly, it is refreshingly critical of the conventional wisdom in western medical ethics, which today denies its historic roots in the dignity and sanctity of the human person.» (Robert A. Destro, Commissioner United States Commission on Civil Rights)
