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 ...

Plasma derived products are used to treat a number of different conditions, including ...
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 ...

Nathaniel Hawthornes story Rappaccinis Daughter is a nineteenth-century moral fable that sets the fruits of experimental knowledge against obligations to humanity, and stages a dramatic encounter between these two apparent goods. In many ways, the moral it offers seems familiar, and could be recognized by anyone with even a passing familiarity with contemporary bioethical debates. It features a mad scientists garden, a gorgeous but poisonous plant of his creation, and a lovely daughter who tends to his terrible plants, and who is-like the plant-both attractive and potentially infectious. The daughter receives the attentions of a naïve medical student, and she falls in love with him, but their fate is shadowed by the actions of not one but two bad scientist father-figures who experiment upon the younger characters and try to shape their (biological) destinies without their knowledge. But Hawthornes story does not simply anticipate, in an antique and allegorical way, contemporary defenses ...
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 ...

President Barack Obama appointed COL Nelson Michael, the Director of MHRP, to the Commission for the Study of Bioethical Issues. The Commission will advise the President on bioethical issues that may emerge from advances in biomedicine and related areas of science and technology. President Obama signed an Executive Order creating the new Presidential Commission for the Study of Bioethical Issues on November 24, 2009.
The Role of the Commission. The Presidential Commission for the Study of Bioethical Issues (the Bioethics Commission) advises the President on bioethical issues arising from the advances in biomedicine and related areas of science and technology. The Bioethics Commission has advised the President on the future of synthetic biology, protecting participants in human subjects research, whole genome sequencing, and has performed an investigation into unethical STD experiments in the 1940s in Guatemala. Currently, the Bioethics Commission is reviewing the ethical considerations of conducting research with children for medical countermeasures, which include FDA-regulated products used in response to chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear attacks. The Bioethics Commission is an independent, deliberative panel of experts that advises the President and the Administration, and, in so doing, educates the nation on bioethical issues.. ...

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 ...

Baby Boomers have been referred to as the Me Generation, but new research indicates that people actually started to become increasingly self-centred more than 100 years ago. In the first study of its kind covering a 150-year period, researchers looked at US culture to determine how and why people there became more independent and less reliant on family ties, conformity and duty. This phenomenon is called individualism.
