The advent of electric cars and the long-term conversion of much of America's fleet to ZEV would have had multiple devastating effects on the oil industry and would have led to permanent changes in auto manufacturing. Water supplies are fouled and people and industry suffer the consequences. Public health will be impacted immediately and for decades by the process which brings to the surface oil-soaked mud, radium, chromium, iron, and other salts that were trapped in the rock.

... Albany Medical Center. AMBI HOME October 21, 2013. National Public Radio NPR reported on the advances in treating mitochondrial disease with its story that embryologists are now capable of creating an embryo with maternal DNA but with another woman’s mitochondria, thus allowing women with serious mitochondrial diseases to have healthy offspring. The second ethical issue is that the child could be understood as having the DNA of three parents because he or she would have the mitochondrial DNA of the ovum donor while having the nuclear DNA of his or her parents.  Having the genetics of a third parent only in our mitochondria is too abstract a concern to cause serious issues for the children that could now be born healthy if this technology was used.  The Alden March Bioethics Institute offers a Master of Science in Bioethics, a Doctorate of Professional Studies in Bioethics, and Graduate Certificates in Clinical Ethics and Clinical Ethics Consultation.

A perfect storm: the Baconian project to employ technique to alleviate suffering and increase man’s happiness, combined with a materialist worldview that sees no meaning in suffering, combined with technology that hubristically thinks it can relieve all suffering, combined with a pharmaceutical industry that has a pecuniary interest in medicalizing all of life, and voila.

It uses the systematic account of our common morality developed by one of its authors to provide a useful foundation for dealing with the moral problems and disputes that occur in the practice of medicine. The analyses of impartiality, rationality, and of morality as a public system not only explain why some bioethical questions, such as the moral acceptability of abortion, cannot be resolved, but also provide a method for determining the correct answer for those occasions when a bioethical question ...

Posted By Lisa Campo-Engelstein, PhD The Ethics of Emergency Contraception Some physicians will write prescriptions in advance for young women so they can have immediate access to emergency contraception if the need arises. Some are concerned that the practice of physicians writing prescriptions in advance for emergency contraception will condone, and even encourage, young women’s sexual activity, especially premarital and "promiscuous" sexual activity. On a related note, even if people did not oppose young women's sexual activity, they may still be concerned that writing prescriptions in advance for emergency contraception will discourage young women from using nonemergency contraception. According to mature minor statutes, minors are able to obtain medical treatment for specific health-related conditions without parental consent, including sexual and reproductive health an exception is abortion, as some states have parental consent laws for abortion.

Bioethics 2nd edition, Bernard Gert 9780195159066 - Textbooks.com. Bioethics - 2nd edition ISBN13: 978-0195159066 by Bernard Gert. It uses the systematic account of our common morality developed by one of its authors to provide a useful foundation for dealing with the moral problems and disputes that occur in the practice of medicine. The analyses of impartiality, rationality, and of morality as a public system not only explain why some bioethical questions, such as the moral acceptability of abortion, cannot be resolved, but also provide a method for determining the correct answer for those occasions when a bioethical question has a unique correct answer. Its discussion of euthanasia and physician assisted suicide challenged the standard views that have been put forward by both proponents and opponents of physician assisted suicide and voluntary active euthanasia.

Home Center for Bioethics. Bioethikos: Bringing Life to Bioethics. Are Placebos Ethical. September 3rd, 2013. Some believe it is unethical for a health care provider to prescribe a placebo treatment, since it deceives the patient and therefore violates patient autonomy. Over 76% of those surveyed thought it was okay for health care providers to prescribe a placebo if it caused no harm, and nearly two-thirds of respondents indicated they themselves would take placebos. Yet, respondents also valued honesty, believing if patients questioned the medication, the health care provider should disclose to them that it was a placebo. The clinical treatment of patients is complex. Health care providers often face a difficult choice: to prescribe medications which could also have harmful side effects or to prescribe placebos which could violate a patient’s autonomy.

History Philosophy Scientific advancements References External links. History. Historically, there have been a number of religions and religious denominations which promoted the reduction of suffering by explicitly advocating non-violent behavior. 1 Two quotations commonly ascribed to Gautama Buddha are "I teach one thing and one thing only: suffering and the end of suffering",. 2 3 and "may all that have life be delivered from suffering.".

Bioethics - A part of ethics that studies moral side of human activities in medicine and biology. Let us dwell on those areas in biotechnological research, which are directly linked with high risk violations of individual rights and cause the most critical debate about their widespread use: transplantation of organs and cells for therapeutic purposes and cloning. Recent years have witnessed increased interest in the study and application in biomedicine, human embryonic stem cell and cloning technology to their production. Isolation of these cells produced from human embryos and fetuses of 5-8 weeks, obtained during medical termination of pregnancy abortion, giving rise to numerous questions about the ethical and legal legitimacy of research on human embryos, including these: - As far as necessary and justified ...

During the 1990 s, scientists discovered two gene mutations in the BRCA family of genes which significantly increase a woman s chances of developing breast and ovarian cancer. Consequently, as noted in a recent Los Angeles Times article by Anna Gorman, "Many oncologists recommend that women with the mutations consider having their ovaries, fallopian tubes and breasts removed prophylactically to reduce risk.". Yet controversy exists regarding this recommendation. Precautionary surgery of this kind has been termed mutilating and "extreme" and some question whether it is, in fact, justifiable, given that the organs appear to be healthy no cancer is yet detectable, and there is a limited probability that the disease may one ...

*  Bioethics and Sport: The Beam in Your Eye - LASIK
Bioethics and Sport A conversation on ethical issues related to sports medicine and technology. Laser eye surgery is a medical intervention intended to relieve the deterioration of eyesight. Is it important that the individual’s eyesight is being restored to a previous level of vision. The surgery would not return the individual to any previous state and, in that sense, s he would not be restored. In this case, the person would be restored only in the sense that there exists some species-typical state of function, where the treatment is characterised as therapeutic based on some typical functionality that a given species should possess. This could also account for an individual who is born with partial vision – for whom we might also argue that restoration to perfect human vision is justified on account of a species-typical level of functioning to which we are comparing the said capability. These examples can be contrasted with an intervention that would raise the level of capability beyond both an ...

(1/245) How identical would cloned children be? An understanding essential to the ethical debate.

The ban on human cloning in many countries worldwide is founded on an assumption that cloned children will be identical to each other and to their nuclear donor. This paper explores the scientific basis for this assumption, considering both the principles and practice of cloning in animals and comparing genetic and epigenetic variation in potential human clones with that in monozygotic twins.  (+info)

(2/245) In defence of medical ethics.

A number of recent publications by the philosopher David Seedhouse are discussed. Although medicine is an eminently ethical enterprise, the technical and ethical aspects of health care practices can be distinguished, therefore justifying the existence of medical ethics and its teaching as a specific part of every medical curriculum. The goal of teaching medical ethics is to make health care practitioners aware of the essential ethical aspects of their work. Furthermore, the contention that rational bioethics is a fruitless enterprise because it analyses non-rational social events seems neither theoretically tenable nor to be borne out by actual practice. Medical ethics in particular and bioethics in general, constitute a field of expertise that must make itself understandable and convincing to relevant audiences in health care.  (+info)

(3/245) Bioethics regulations in Turkey.

Although modern technical and scientific developments in medicine are followed closely in Turkey, it cannot be claimed that the same is true in the field of bioethics. Yet, more and more attention is now being paid to bioethics and ethics training in health sciences. In addition, there are also legal regulations in bioethics, some of which are not so new. The objective of these regulations is to provide technical and administrative control. Ethical concerns are rather few. What attracts our attention most in these regulations is the presence of the idea of "consent".  (+info)

(4/245) Some ethical issues at the population level raised by 'soft' eugenics, euphenics, and isogenics.

It is argued that at the population level there are three central genetic developments raising ethical issues. The first is the emergence of 'soft' eugenics, due primarily to the increasing ability to detect carriers of genetic diseases, to monitor their pregnancies, and to provide the option to abort a fetus predisposed to major genetic disease. The second development is the recognition of the extent to which many serious diseases of adult life are due to a disturbance of ancient genetic homeostatic mechanisms due to changing life style, raising the question of whether a society that increasingly pays the medical bills should attempt to impose healthier standards of living on its members. Such an attempt at 'euphenics' may be thought of as the antithesis to eugenics. The third development relates to recognition of the need to regulate the size of the earth's population to numbers that can be indefinitely sustained; this regulation in a fashion (isogenic) that will preserve existing genetic diversity.  (+info)

(5/245) Ethnicity, bioethics, and prenatal diagnosis: the amniocentesis decisions of Mexican-origin women and their partners.

Bioethical standards and counseling techniques that regulate prenatal diagnosis in the United States were developed at a time when the principal constituency for fetal testing was a self-selected group of White, well-informed, middle-class women. The routine use of alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) testing, which has become widespread since the mid-1980s, introduced new constituencies to prenatal diagnosis. These new constituencies include ethnic minority women, who, with the exception of women from certain Asian groups, refuse amniocentesis at significantly higher rates than others. This study examines the considerations taken into account by a group of Mexican-origin women who had screened positive for AFP and were deciding whether to undergo amniocentesis. We reviewed 379 charts and interviewed 147 women and 120 partners to test a number of factors that might explain why some women accept amniocentesis and some refuse. A woman's attitudes toward doctors, medicine, and prenatal care and her assessment of the risk and uncertainty associated with the procedure were found to be most significant. Case summaries demonstrate the indeterminacy of the decision-making process. We concluded that established bioethical principles and counseling techniques need to be more sensitive to the way ethnic minority clients make their amniocentesis choices.  (+info)

(6/245) Talking about cases in bioethics: the effect of an intensive course on health care professionals.

Educational efforts in bioethics are prevalent, but little is known about their efficacy. Although previous work indicates that courses in bioethics have a demonstrable effect on medical students, it has not examined their effect on health care professionals. In this report, we describe a study designed to investigate the effect of bioethics education on health care professionals. At the Intensive Bioethics Course, a six-day course held annually at Georgetown University, we administered a questionnaire requiring open-ended responses to vignettes both before and after the course. Following the course, respondents defended their responses more carefully and articulated their thoughts more clearly. In addition, after the course respondents seemed to have a more subtle understanding of the relevant issues in the cases and applied theory to these cases more frequently. These findings help to formulate an understanding of the effect of bioethics education on health care professionals.  (+info)

(7/245) Ongoing research on mammalian cloning and embryo stem cell technologies: bioethics of their potential medical applications.

Reproduction by cloning has been achieved by transfer into enucleated oocytes of nuclei from embryonic cells and more recently from cells of adult animals. The efficiency at which embryos produced by such nuclear transfers will develop into healthy newborns is very low but has succeeded in producing some cloned bovines, ovines and mice. Since the first report of sheep cloning from an adult cell in 1997, the potential applications of reproductive cloning in human medicine have been envisaged amidst a flurry of moral debates. Although the technology is still far from being ready for any human use, it has been condemned up front. It has also led to irrational fantasies and fears, based mainly on the misconception that genetic identity means identical twin personalities. Scientific research is ongoing to refine the cloning technology for applications in the production of genetically homogeneous farm animals with useful nutritional or therapeutic genetic traits. A new area of research is non-reproductive therapeutic cloning for the purpose of producing autologous embryonic cells and tissues for transplantation.  (+info)

(8/245) Progress and potential for gene-based medicines.

During the past decade researchers have explored the potential of gene-based medicines to extend current treatments employing chemical entities and proteins. However, progress has been slower than was originally predicted due to our limited knowledge of the genetic components of major diseases, the complexity of developing active biological agents as therapies, and the stringent and time-consuming tests necessary to ensure safety prior to introduction of these novel modalities in the clinic. In spite of the present technology challenges and clinical setbacks in gene therapy it is anticipated that gene-based medicines will find their niche in disease prevention and management strategies in the coming decade, extending the repertoire of medicines available to satisfy key unmet medical needs. Additionally, progress in xenotransplantation research is creating the opportunity to use gene-modified porcine organs for human transplantation. This innovative approach aims to address the current insufficiency of human donor organs for clinical transplantation.  (+info)

What is a good question to argue about abortion in bioethics?


  • It has to have two different sides of the question. It is kind of like an argumentative paper.... what question should I argue?
  • Should women who get abortions be allowed to decide what happens to the embryonic or fetal remains? I would have liked the option of donating it to science - stem cell research. ~Divine


can anybody discuss about human rights and privileges related to bioethics?


  • i'm a nursing student and i badly need it for my report. unfortunately i dont seem to find any in the web.thanks! it just says rights and privileges under human rights and the person.
  • Report #7 Protection of Medical Staff Members’ Personal Proprietary Financial Information is an informational document describing a resolution in which American Medical Association (AMA) delegates wanted their Council of Ethical and Judicial Affairs (CEJA) to add to the prior CEJA Opinion regarding medical records and computers which begins:"the utmost effort and care must be taken to protect the confidentiality of all medical records, including computerized medical records” to also include the confidentiality of medical staff members personal proprietary financial information. The concern of the resolution was that of the possibility of inappropriate disclosure and use of physician financial information and the extent to which that information may be used to demonstrate a conflict of interest. The inappropriate use might include the granting, denying, or termination of hospital staff privileges. The CEJA concluded that such a change was inappropriate to include in the Opinion on all medical records but the resolution was already covered in an established Opinion regarding Staff Privileges: Decisions regarding hospital privileges should be based upon the training, experience, and demonstrated competence of candidates, taking into consideration the availability of facilities and the overall medical needs of the community, the hospital, and especially patients. Privileges should not be based on numbers of patients admitted to the facility or the economic or insurance status of the patient. Personal friendships, antagonisms, jurisdictional disputes, or fear of competition should not play a role in making these decisions. Physicians who are involved in the granting, denying, or termination of hospital privileges have an ethical responsibility to be guided primarily by concern for the welfare and best interests of patients in discharging this responsibility.


Does vegetarianism relate to bioethics?


  • I am doing a project and I need to choose a topic that relates to bioethics or biotechnology. I want to choose vegetarianism as my topic, but I'm not sure if that relates to bioethics or biotechnology.
  • Well, you could consider examining /investigating the new biotechnologies that are proposing to "grow" meat in petri dishes. This actually presents an interesting moral topic for many vegetarians, for whom animal rights are key to their decision to not eat meat. If it's flesh grown and never part of an actual animal, does the moral dilemma / concern still exist? Biotechnology is also an issue for vegetarians, for whom many of the foods they eat may have GM (genetically modified) components, especially products that contain soy. Another interesting angle on this is the potential for animal genes to be inserted into certain crop/veggie foods. How will vegetarians feel about eating, let's say a tomato that has a cod gene in it to help prevent it from freezing? It just depends on what area of bioethics or biotechnology really interests you.


how do bioethics relate to the recommendations layed out in the successive health promotion charters ?


  • the charters include alma ata,ottawa,jarkata,sundvall and adelaide conferences. how do these charters adress biomedical issues and are there any ethics violated and if so what`s the solution.

What are Bioethics??


  • I want to learn more about Bioethics but, I don't know hat they are!? Help?
  • bioethics, in philosophy, a branch of ethics concerned with issues surrounding health care and the biological sciences. These issues include the morality of abortion, euthanasia, in vitro fertilization, and organ transplants (see transplantation, medical). In the 1970s bioethics emerged as a discipline with its own experts, often professional philosophers, who developed university courses on the subject. Many hospitals now employ experts on bioethics to advise on such issues as how to treat terminally ill patients and to allocate limited resources. Advances in health care, the development of genetic screening, and the new research in genetic engineering, including gene therapy, have also given rise to questions in bioethics. definition:(by me) The study of the ethical and moral implications of new biological discoveries and biomedical advances, as in the fields of genetic engineering and drug research. best answer? =]

Why should patients be treated without health insurance?


  • I am doing some research for this question for my Bioethics class. As a future physician, I strongly support this statement and need some more feedback universally.
  • Because not everyone can afford to have health insurance. Medicaid on applies to the very poor... not to the people that are barley getting by. Patients without insurance are people too, and have family and friends that love them very much. Not to long ago, I was without insurance. I was a 19 year old college student, my mom got laid off. I lost my insurance and I was too old to get Medicaid. I went 4 years without insurance. I was working on my under graduate degree, and then went for my Masters. I was working a job that did not offer health insurance (I was working 40+ hours a week), but needed to stay there since they work around my schedule. I went to health clinics when I was sick and saved up enough money to pay for my gyno visits as well as my dental visit (which I found a health clinic that was reasonable in price and took people with no insurance). I finally got a new job, but they did not offer health insurance right away. I was there for over a year before I got health insurance. It is hard finding a job that offers health insurance. Especially when you are young. There are so many jobs that do not offer it to their employees for one reason or another. Health insurance on your own is so expensive that it is sometimes better to take a chance and go to the doctor and pay out of pocket when needed. I wish United States will follow the lead of Canada and Europe and offer Health insurance to all the citizens.
