This book crosses artificial borders between bioethics and health law, and between American bioethics and international human rights. American isolationism is not tenable in the wake of scientific triumphs like decoding the human genome and civilizational tragedies like international terrorism. Using out imaginations and briging two universal codes together, the human genome and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, American bioethics can be reborn and help make the world a better, healthier, place to live
