Fertility and Gender book from the Anscombe Bioethics Centre

I got this in the mail.  It should be a really good book.
Dear Colleagues, 
What is sex and why is it important?  Does marriage have a basic rationale?  How should couples manage their fertility, and when and how should pregnancy be achieved?  How should we respond to 'embryo adoption', teenage pregnancy, population growth or decline, HIV/AIDS and other STIs, same-sex attraction?  

These are some of the issues explored in the Anscombe Bioethics Centre's new book Fertility & Gender: Issues in Reproductive and Sexual Ethics -  see http://anscombebioethics.bigcartel.com/product/fertility-and-gender for more information and to order.  Contributors from the fields of philosophy, theology, psychology and economic science include Bishop Anthony Fisher, John Berry, Kevin Flannery, Mary Geach, Luke Gormally, Dermot Grenham, Paul Mankowski, Anthony McCarthy, Kevin O'Reilly, David Paton, Alexander Pruss, Philip Sutton and Helen Watt. The book offers an original contribution to a range of discussions in the sensitive and important area of sexual/reproductive ethics. 

For a list of other Anscombe Centre publications, see our Bookshop at http://anscombebioethics.bigcartel.comYou may also be interested in a conference the Anscombe Centre is holding on 8 September 2011 on Human Embryo Research:  Law, Ethics and Public Policy.  See our website at http://www.bioethics.org.uk/static_content.php?key_id=conferences&page_id=news_and_events for more information and to make an 'early bird' discounted booking (available until 30 June).   

With all good wishes,

They're looking for a U.S. distributor, and it should be on Amazon in a few weeks.
