Summary
"In Some Choice, America's leading commentator on health law and bioethics, George J. Annas, demonstrates that in contemporary medicine there is seldom a meaningful choice to be made by the patient; the important choices have been made by others. The illusion of choice perversely fosters complacency and prevents us from dealing with critical issues of life and death." "Professor Annas uses the cases of human cloning, drive-through deliveries, emergency medicine, genetic privacy, human experimentation, tobacco control, and physician-assisted suicide, among others, to suggest ways in which we can break through our vapid and superficial "some choice" public discourse on life and death issues and begin to engage in a public dialogue that enriches our lives and society rather than commodifies and cheapens them."--BOOK JACKET
