Ruth Macklin is Professor of Bioethics at Albert Einstein College of Medicine and the author of eight books, including the highly praised "Mortal Choices: Bioethics in Today's World" and "Enemies of Patients: How Doctors Are Losing Their Power and Patients Are Losing Their Rights." A consultant to and board member of several national and international organizations, including the National Institute of Health, the National Research Council, and the World Health Organization, she has directed her educational and writing efforts to issues of urban health, health policy and law, reproductive technologies, and biomedical research and ethics.
"The story she conducts about the struggle of 'Bonnie and Larry Roberts' to have a child is poignant, moving, and illustrative of precisely the kinds of challenges, options, and limits those who avail themselves of the latest breakthroughs in the treatment of infertility face. Not only will the Roberts's story ring true to anyone who has spent any time seeking to bring a child into their family via adoption or surrogacy, but it also highlights the heretofore relatively unexamined questions of the responsibilities and duties of the doctors, therapists, counselors, agencies, interest groups, and regulators who are involved in the treatment of infertility. Anyone who seeks to better understand the meaning of 'parent,' 'child,' or 'family' will benefit from reading this important work." --Arthur L. Caplan, Professor of Bioethics and Director, Center for Bioethics, University of Pennsylvania "Ruth Macklin has a unique ability to tackle the complex ethical and legal challenges raised by the new reproductive technologies with originality and style. By using the narrative, she captures our imaginations, our hearts, and our minds, and enables us to understand the inter connections among such diverse issues as AIDS, the right to privacy, controlling pregnant women, surrogacy, and assisted reproduction." --Karen H. Rothenberg, Professor of Law and Director, Law and Health Care Program, University of Maryland
