What sort of contraception, if any, should I use? When does human life begin-at fertilisation or at some point after that? What are the arguments for and against abortion? Is it OK to use genetic screening and other pre-natal tests to check for abnormalities in my unborn baby? Should Christians use IVF and other assisted reproductive technologies? What is the current state of embryonic stem cell research?
These are just some of the many complex and emotion-laden questions we face in the rapidly changing field of reproductive medicine, and most Christians do so with two very significant handicaps:
- We don't have accurate up-to-date information about the medical and technological issues involved.
- We have not thought through a sound, biblical framework for making ethical decisions in this area.
Dr Megan Best provides what is lacking in both of these vital areas. Built on extensive historical, biblical and medical research, Fearfully and Wonderfully Made is the comprehensive, accurate, biblically-based ethical handbook that Christians have been waiting for.
Megan is a bioethicist and palliative care doctor who is employed by Hope Healthcare, a Christian healthcare provider in Sydney. Her clinical focus is the development of a Palliative Care Day Clinic which aims to support terminally ill patients with advanced disease who wish to remain living at home. Megan has been a strong participant in the CASE network as an associate, scholar and member of the CASE editorial group. She works as a member of the Faculty writing papers, delivering lectures and co-convenes the annual CASE medical ethic conference.
