About the Author

Charles C. Camosy is assistant professor of Christian ethics at Fordham University. This is his first book.

More About the Author

I'm a professor of Christian Ethics at Fordham University in New York City who is interested in building conversation and solidarity between groups which sometimes find it difficult to engage. In particular, I want to show the overlap between 'pro-life conservatives' and 'social justice liberals.'

My latest book does this with respect to the issues of concern for non-human animals. I'm curious to know what you think! In addition to rating it on Amazon, please go to the book's Facebook page and leave a comment: https://www.facebook.com/forloveofanimals

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Dr. Camosy does an excellent job laying out the arguments for personhood and the challenge of seriously imperiled infants. While there is a component of Catholic ethics at play, this book is accessible for secular ethicists and draws upon the leaders of the field, e.g. John Lantos among others. Super dense so take your time to soak in the philosophical arguments.

1 of 5 people found the following review helpful By N. A. Ramirez MD on February 1, 2012
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Realistic, catholic-ethics inspired review of Neonatal Intensive care decisions, and their costly consequences.
Slightly skewed perspective based on "future quality of life" appreciations that are hard to introspect when
one is not the parent of a bad-outcome baby, or the baby itself. How can we judge the quality of life of another
human, especially if cost is a predominant factor? Recommend reading by ethicians, Advanced Practice Nurse Practicioners,
Neonatologists, and hospital administrators who care (rare).
