Transplanting the Womb: A Catholic Bioethical Analysis, by Andrew S. Kubick, gives an extensive account of the ethical ramifications of uterus transplantation (UTx). Adapted from Kubick's doctoral dissertation, it examines the previous decade of advancements in this emerging field of medicine, evaluating both the progress made and the ethical concerns surrounding the process. The analysis is necessary, as no previous publications have provided an exploration of such depth. This book weighs both secular and Catholic ethical traditions, providing a detailed account of the development of the process, the literature published on the matter, and the process's place in the context of sound Christian anthropology.
Academically rigorous and faithful to the Catholic intellectual tradition, Transplanting the Womb will leave readers with both a greater understanding of uterus transplantation and a deeper appreciation of Catholic moral philosophy.
