Chapter Summary

The front matter section of this book Childrens Bioethics contains table of contents, acknowledgments, list of abbreviations and acronyms and introduction. In contemporary discourse, bioethics has come to be synonymous with the inquiry into the ethical implications of modern scientific and technological development in medicine. Globalization has certainly introduced technological developments in medicine worldwide. Organ transplants, abortions, in vitro fertilization, and other medical procedures take place in remote communities around the world, which in the past would have been left outside the international trend. The book examines the international biopolitical discourse with respect to the childs right to cultural identity. It focuses on traditional bodily and medical practices that are performed on children for religio-cultural reasons.

Keywords: bioethics; in vitro fertilization; organ transplants
