Summary
"When his teenaged son Christopher, brain-damaged in an auto accident, developed a 106-degree fever following weeks of unconsciousness, John Campbell asked the attending physician for help. The doctor's response: Why bother? The boy's life was effectively over. Campbell refused to accept this death sentence. He threatened legal action and the doctor finally relented. With treatment, Christopher's temperature subsided almost immediately. Soon he regained consciousness and today he is learning to walk again." "This story is one of many Wesley J. Smith recounts in Culture of Death." "In this deeply felt but coolly argued book, he goes behind the scenes of our health care system to show how a new, self-proclaimed elite of "bioethicists" threaten patient welfare by undermining the Hippocratic Oath."--BOOK JACKET
