Modern societies are characterized by high levels of pluralism. The bioethics debates in Germany during the past two decades were exceptionally fierce. Horst Dreier not only weighs all the arguments but also reconstructs the constitutional framework of democratic decision-making. He analyzes the relevant constitutionally protected values and recapitulates the concrete decisions made by lawmakers, to whom he gives quite a bit of latitude.
