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

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)

In defence of medical ethics. (2/245)

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)

Bioethics regulations in Turkey. (3/245)

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)

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

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)

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

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)

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

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)

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

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)

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

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)

In this paper I explore the power of money in bioethics research and ask whether, while casting stones regarding financial conflicts of interest in health research, bioethics researchers are in fact living in glass houses. I first review the need for money in bioethics research, the sources of money, and key features of the money (specifically, the amount of money involved and the fact that the money often is embedded, encumbered, and required to be matched). Next, I explore a range of possible objectives for the money transfer. I then examine the effects of this transfer and raise some questions and concerns about the role of money in bioethics research. I close with some suggestions for possible responses to these questions and concerns-suggestions concerning what bioethics researchers as individuals and as a community could do to more positively and progressively harness the power of money in bioethics research.
Background: Few ontological attempts have been reported for conceptualizing the bioethics domain. In addition to limited scope representativeness and lack of robust methodological approaches in driving research design and evaluation of bioethics ontologies, no bioethics ontologies exist for pandemics and COVID-19. This research attempted to investigate whether studying the bioethics research literature, from the inception of bioethics research publications, facilitates developing highly agile, and representative computational bioethics ontology as a foundation for the automatic governance of bioethics processes in general and the COVID-19 pandemic in particular.Research Design: The iOntoBioethics agile research framework adopted the Design Science Research Methodology. Using systematic literature mapping, the search space resulted in 26,170 Scopus indexed bioethics articles, published since 1971. iOntoBioethics underwent two distinctive stages: (1) Manually Constructing Bioethics (MCB) ontology from

Editors note: This is the fourth article in a monthly series on what Christians should know about bioethics.. Because bioethics is a topic that is unfamiliar for most Christians, Ive used the previous three articles outlining why Christians should care about bioethics and how we can better think about such issues. Now lets consider some ways believers can bring a Christian perspective to bear on issues of bioethics in their own circles of influence.. Although there are numerous ways to approach this task, I want to emphasize a narrative approach-using story, metaphors, books, and movies-to illuminate the Christian perspective on bioethics.. Raise awareness: The single greatest contribution most Christians can make in regards to bioethics is simply to help raise awareness of specific issues, particularly those that threaten human dignity.. We often find that Christians are completely unaware of the challenges that arise, particularly from the emerging field of biotechnology. Consider, for ...

Bioethics is a branch of ethical inquiry that examines the nature of biological and technological discoveries and the responsible use of biomedical advances, with particular emphasis upon their moral implications for our individual and common humanity.. The term bioethics, originally coined by Von Rensselaer in 1970, has evolved from a more specific emphasis upon medical ethics to include a wide range of issues such as allocation of healthcare resources, end-of-life treatment, euthanasia and physician-assisted suicide, reproductive technologies, genetic intervention, stem cell research, cloning, neuroscience, and other emerging biotechnologies. While a branch of ethical inquiry, bioethics is interdisciplinary in nature integrating such diverse fields as the life sciences, medicine, biotechnology, philosophy, theology, public policy, and law.. The articles in this section explore some of the broader issues involved in bioethics, including theological and philosophical explorations central to ...

Designing bioethics curriculum for international postgraduate students is a challenging task. There are at least two main questions, which have to be resolved in advance: (1) what is a purpose of a particular teaching program and (2) how to respectfully arrange a classroom for students coming from different cultural and professional backgrounds. In our paper we analyze the case of the Erasmus Mundus Master of Bioethics program and provide recommendations for international bioethics education. In our opinion teaching bioethics to postgraduate international students goes beyond curriculum. It means that such a program requires not only well-defined goals, including equipping students with necessary skills and knowledge, but also it should first and foremost facilitate positive group dynamics among students and enables them to engage in dialogue to learn from one another.

Bioethics needs philosophers with medical experience, and even more it needs philosophers who can write well and interestingly about bioethics without oversimplifying the issues. Elliott scores on both counts: he deploys considerable philosophical erudition and an ability to combine literary and philosophical sources to help us understand the dilemmas of modern medicine. In doing so, he certainly celebrates complexity. He fails, however, to be persuasive on either of his other main theses-that we have much to learn from Wittgenstein about bioethics and that general suspicion of theoretical approaches to bioethics is warranted. … ...

As bioethics gains more prominence in public policy debates, it is time to more fully reflect on the following: what is its role in the public square, and what limitations relate to and barriers impede its fulfilment of this role? I contend we should consider the how of bioethics (as a policy influencer) rather than simply focus on the who or what of bioethical enquiry. This is not to suggest considerations of latter categories are not important, only that too little attention has been paid to parallel or resulting policy involvement-involvement that will require specialised skills and knowledge that we can develop with a proactive (vs reactive) stance. Moreover, and equally critically, this how of public policy involvement will require more transparency regarding influences (eg, philosophical, ideological, cultural, socio-political) on what bioethicists bring to the table and what constituency base each represents-a humility as to the scope of ones role. In this vision, bioethics is not one ...
Bioethics is the study of the ethical issues emerging from advances in biology and medicine. It is also moral discernment as it relates to medical policy and practice. Bioethicists are concerned with the ethical questions that arise in the relationships among life sciences, biotechnology, medicine, politics, law, and philosophy. It includes the study of values (the ethics of the ordinary) relating to primary care and other branches of medicine. The term Bioethics (Greek bios, life; ethos, behavior) was coined in 1926 by Fritz Jahr in an article about a bioethical imperative regarding the use of animals and plants in scientific research. In 1970, the American biochemist Van Rensselaer Potter used the term to describe the relationship between the biosphere and a growing human population. Potters work laid the foundation for global ethics, a discipline centered around the link between biology, ecology, medicine, and human values. The field of bioethics has addressed a broad swathe of human ...

Heres a New Years prediction. The worlds biggest-selling bioethics book this year will not be written by anyone from the University of Pennsylvania, Oxford, Harvard or Monash. It will be A Students Guide to Bioethics, produced by the Jérôme Lejeune Foundation, in Paris, at the request of the Vaticans Pontifical Academy for Life. It has been translated into French, Portuguese, English and Spanish and two million copies are being printed - a respectable number for a bioethics text.. The 70-page book will be distributed to pilgrims to World Youth Day in Rio de Janeiro in July - an event which takes place every three years and is probably the biggest youth gathering in the world.. It has eight chapters which cover the story of a little human being, abortion, prenatal diagnosis, medically assisted procreation, pre-implantation genetic diagnosis, embryo research, euthanasia, organ donation and gender theory.. No prizes for guessing what position the book takes on these issues. But with two ...

Bioethics culture in Africa is nascent. There are ethical dilemmas in research, public health and medical practice in Africa like there is no tomorrow, but explicit discussion in the press, teaching about bioethics issues in medical schools, public debate about the ethics of health policies ... not so much. That is why it is sometimes helpful to have African courts play the unintended role of bioethics catalyst. This weeks news has a couple of juicy legal stories with ethical overtones. In Namibia, the High Court in Windhoek ruled that three women were sterilized without their informed consent, and the women will be given as-yet-to-be-determined damages. According to their lawyers, the women presented at government clinics in order to deliver their babies by caesarean section, and the government doctors said they would only be eligible for the surgery if they agreed to be sterilized at the same time. The judge sensibly ruled that the sterilization was coercive and that the women were not in a ...

He began to think seriously about a second career as a university professor after he started teaching health law at the University of Colorado School of Law in 1988.. The most interesting, challenging and stimulating topics I taught in that course always had to do with bioethics, he recalls. It became clear to me that where I wanted to be in academia was dealing with critical issues in biomedical ethics and bringing my legal background to bear on these dilemmas.. To seal his decision, he pursued a doctorate in philosophy at the university, while still teaching in the law school, medical school and bioethics in the philosophy department. After receiving his doctorate in 1995, he became the assistant director and assistant professor in the program in health care ethics, humanities and law at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center..

In a series of deliberations, the Presidential Commission for the Study of Bioethical Issues (the Bioethics Commission) today addressed how incidental findings should be handled in the context of research, the clinic, and direct-to-consumer testing. What are the responsibilities of clinicians and researchers in seeking out and reporting incidental findings to patients? What are the responsibilities of direct-to-consumer industries in delivering results that might be sensitive to the consumer? The Members and speakers emphasized the responsibility of clinicians and researchers, and spoke of potential voluntary measures that the direct-to-consumer testing industry might take to deliver findings in an ethical manner. Discussion highlights included:. Once you take up the ethical question of what you should do with incidental findings of the traditional sort, you, as a thinking human being, have to ask the question: what should our general rule or general practice be, since there are these ...

The scientific claims made in the article below are so absurd, profuse, and so blatantly fly in the face of internationally accepted scientific facts that it could only be construed as pure propaganda constructed solely to advance a research agenda that would otherwise be abhorrent to the public... One quite seriously has to ask where in the world the Presidents Bioethics Council gets these experts -- and why. Dont they ever do their homework? Or would that be counter-productive to more pressing policy goals?

Definitions:. Cloning: the scientific method by which animals or plants can be created which have exactly the same genetic make-up as the original, because the DNA of the original is used.. Reproductive cloning: to make a complete identical animal, possibly a human being.. Stem cell: a cell, most often taken from a 4-5 day old embryo (blastocyst), whose role in the body is yet to be determined.. Therapeutic cloning: removing cells from a patient and treating them in a lab in order to produce stem cells which may be used to treat disorders, e.g. Alzheimers disease.. Therapeutic Cloning:. This is where DNA is taken out of an embryo and replaced with DNA taken from another individual in order to generate stem cells. It is sometimes known as stem cell cloning. The aim is to take the stem cells from the modified embryo and use them in research to find treatments for a range of diseases. According to the law, any embryos used in such a way have to be killed after 14 days. This technology therefore ...
In late 2003, two international bodies were unable to resolve disagreements that involved bioethical issues. First, the United Nations General Assembly failed to pass a treaty on reproductive cloning because of insistence by some countries that the treaty include a ban on cloning for research. In view of the importance of enacting prohibition of reproductive cloning, the two issues should be separated and each argued on its own merits. Relevant objections to separation of the two issues can be refuted. Second, the European Union (EU) failed to agree on conditions for funding stem-cell research because of the diversity of views and policies of the countries of the EU. Because a stalemate was reached, funding decisions in the next programme cycle will be made on an ad hoc basis. Scientists will not have information they need to plan research programmes, suggesting that clear guidelines, even if restrictive, are preferable to vague unpublicised criteria. ...

Nature) - It might take years or even decades until BCI and other neurotechnologies are part of our daily lives. But technological developments mean that we are on a path to a world in which it will be possible to decode peoples mental processes and directly manipulate the brain mechanisms underlying their intentions, emotions and decisions; where individuals could communicate with others simply by thinking; and where powerful computational systems linked directly to peoples brains aid their interactions with the world such that their mental and physical abilities are greatly enhanced. Such advances could revolutionize the treatment of many conditions, from brain injury and paralysis to epilepsy and schizophrenia, and transform human experience for the better. But the technology could also exacerbate social inequalities and offer corporations, hackers, governments or anyone else new ways to exploit and manipulate people. And it could profoundly alter some core human characteristics: private ...

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- President Clinton asked a White House bioethics advisory commission of outside experts to look at ethical, legal and other issues raised by the successful cloning of a sheep in Scotland. The cloning is a remarkable scientific discovery, but one that raises important questions, Clinton said Monday in a letter to Dr. Harold Shapiro, chairman of the commission. The president said he was particularly concerned about the possible use of this technology to clone human embryos. It is a very troubling subject, White House Press Secretary Mike McCurry said. Clinton asked the advisory panel to report back within 90 days with recommendations to prevent abuse of this new technology. He signed a federal ban in 1995 on the use of human embryos for research. Meanwhile, an ABC News poll showed that 87 percent of Americans believed cloning humans should be specifically banned, and 82 percent said they thought it was morally wrong. Fifty percent said they disapproved of the Scottish ...

In Norma Rae, and Europa 51 the leading women are seen in factories which are loud, mechanical, inhuman. Focus on the grinding gears seems to imitate the work of their minds. Workers visually blend with the machines. Both the lead characters interact with the roughness of the lives around them. The camera captures faces and expressions of the destitute and poor of spirit. Director Ritts homage to Rossellinis neorealism is complete. There is sickness and death; stroke, deafness, infection, suicide, murder, broken limbs. Only the women leads and their compadres, male non-lover partners, find these occurrences anathema. ...

Social justice is a core goal of the university, and that is reflected in a range of course offerings, scholarly work, and institutional commitments. At this time of broad institutional change, this roundtable discussion offers a chance to reflect on past achievements and challenges and look forward, envisioning how social justice will fit into the future of the university. While there will be an emphasis on open discussion, some of the goals for the panel might be to: Create space for community reflection on the current status of social justice at BSU. Discuss future roles for a formal commitment to SJ in the curriculum (independent academic programs, part of the core, concentrations within majors, etc.) Solicit feedback on what sort of faculty support/development is wanted from the Institute for Social Justice in the future. Initial comments by roundtable members will be limited to five minutes each, so as to encourage optimal audience discussion.
TOUGH MIND, TENDER HEART FEATURES ACTIVIST WORKING TOWARDS SOCIAL JUSTICE THROUGH CREATIVE EXPRESSION. Atlanta, August 6, 2014 -You cant help it.
