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 ...
Ottawa, ON/St. Laurent, QC, May 2, 2000 - Canadas two blood operators, Héma-Québec and Canadian Blood Services (CBS) jointly responded to the Bayer Advisory Council on Bioethics Report on Plasma Product Supply in Canada, issued today.. Canadian Blood Services and Héma-Québec would like to thank the Bayer Advisory Council on Bioethics for their in-depth examination of the plasma collection system in Canada. The report will stimulate needed discussion and raise public awareness of the important issues surrounding plasma self-sufficiency in Canada.. The Bayer Advisory Council on Bioethics document, entitled Plasma Product Supply In Canada: A Bioethical Analysis captures in a concise way some of the larger issues facing Canada with respect to self-sufficiency in plasma. The budget for plasma-derived products in Canada represents approximately $274 million per year, and continues to increase every year. 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 ...

hospital for awake outpatient brain tumor surgery. Mark received an innovation grant to support his novel approach to brain tumors. Over his career he progressively shortened the post-operative recovery period from 5 to 4, to 3, to 2, to 1 day and currently sends patients home the same day. He is a true pioneer in this area.. In addition to his surgical work, Mark has been a dynamic teacher, researcher and writer in neurosurgery and in the area of bioethics. He completed a Masters of Health Sciences program at the Joint Centre for Bioethics in 2003 and has published about 20 qualitative research papers on bioethical issues in surgery. Readers will enjoy his study of patients views on the role of residents(1).. He has developed a very lively teaching program of bioethics within the Neurosurgery Division. Neurosurgery residents have become enthusiastic and reliable participants in the Clinician Investigator Program Research Ethics Day each spring.. Mark finds that the residents have become ...
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 ...
by Sean Philpott-Jones, Chair, Bioethics Program of Clarkson University & Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. The First Cut is the Deepest. Last week, President Trump publicly unveiled his 2018 budget proposal. If left unchanged, that financial blueprint would increase US federal defense spending by more than $50 billion, while also appropriating billions more to bolster immigration enforcement and build a 2,000 mile-long wall along the US border with Mexico. A self-proclaimed deficit hawk, the President would offset those increased expenditures will sharp cuts to the US Departments of State, Energy, Health and Human Services, and the US Environmental Protection Agency.. In sharp contrast to campaign trail promises to boost the economy, create jobs, and protect Americans at home and abroad, however, Trumps 2018 budget is likely to do the exact opposite. Consider, for example, the proposal to cut nearly $6 billion from the US National Institutes of Health (NIH).. Made up of 27 different ...
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 ...

MICHAEL CROMARTIE: Gilbert Meilaender is a renowned author, theologian and Christian ethicist. He is a member of the Presidents Council on Bioethics. He studied at Princeton under Paul Ramsey, one of the early ethicists writing on bioethics, many years ago. Im delighted that this subject that we chose to talk about three months ago was very much a part of the campaign and of our national conversation. We could not have anyone better than Gil Meilaender to speak to this question.. Gil, thank you for coming.. MR. MEILAENDER: Thanks, Michael. I think, in a way, what Im going to do today is a little different from what your speakers yesterday did in that Im actually probably not informing you of anything, in a way; Im thinking through some matters with you and well see where that goes.. I sent Michael my paper in order for him to send it on to Will a week ago, and the only thing he said to me was last night. He said, "Can you make it shorter?" And I said, "No, but Ill read fast."

I had several requests for a post on hormonal contraceptives. I did quite a bit of research on the actual medications in the past. I had the luxury of consulting several medical journals back when I was a chemistry grad student and had access to all the medical journals I could possibly want. Since then I have tried to keep up with the specifics on the individual medications, but I have to be a little more creative in obtaining information. This topic is quite extensive and rife with emotions, controversy, and confusion. I dont believe a blog post would really do it justice, so I direct you The Pill (http://cbhd.org/content/the-pill), edited by Linda Bevington, MD and Russell DiSilvesto, PhD, that is available for free from the Center for Bioethics and Human Dignity. I have not read all of the essays in the book, but I appreciate the introductory essay as well as CBHDs perspective on bioethics issues. This is a great resource for answering questions and is fair with all the perspectives that ...

On 19 November, Dr Geoff Watts, Council member and Chair of our Working Group on mitochondria, will discuss the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authoritys (HFEA) consultation on mitochondrial transfer at a discussion event in London. In this article, adapted from a longer post which first appeared on the Wellcome Trust blog, he reflects on some of the Working Groups conclusions.. "Bioethics body gives green light to three-parent babies." That was the headline I least wanted to see following the publication of our Nuffield Council on Bioethics report on the ethics of novel techniques for the prevention of mitochondrial DNA disorders.. Mitochondria, tiny organelles found in every cell, are in effect powerhouses supplying the bodys energy needs. Mitochondria have a small number of their own genes which, unlike the far greater number located within the cell nucleus, are inherited only through the female line. If a cells mitochondrial genes are mutated they may not function normally, and this ...
According to LifeNews.com, on Wednesday, March 02, a group of 170 scholars, researchers and physicians signed an open letter to President Bush criticizing him for adding three members to his Council on Bioethics who oppose human cloning and embryonic stem cell research.. Bush appointed Benjamin Carson, the director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins University; Diana Schaub, chairman of the department of political science at Loyola College in Maryland; and Peter Lawler, a professor of government at Berry College in Georgia. Carson, particularly, is a speaker who is known for his strong Christian views.. While pro-life looks at human cloning and embryonic stem cell research as unethical, pro-choice sees that it s needed to cure various diseases.. Dr. Arthur Caplan, chair of the Department of Bioethics at the University of Pennsylvania, wrote the letter, criticizing that Bushs council now "lacks credibility as a forum.". "The creation of sound public policy with respect to developments in ...

Bioethical--and especially biotechnological--developments are both so urgent and have come so quickly upon us that there has been little time for Christian bioethicists to reflect upon or develop a coherent methodological approach.
My presentation will target the dilution of the problems weve covered in class; Ill to take us through the complexity of doing the "right thing" and help explain why it so dense, and why society has so many conflicts in terms of bioethical research, treatment, and healthcare. I will be discussing far more than presenting, however, i will use my presentation as a guide so the class follows me to final conclusion. That bioethics cannot be addressed individually, that a doctor cannot perform ethical medicine; instead, society determines the ethics by which it expects from its citizens, and each individual operates within the infringements the ethical framework instills. These infringements contain the harshness of our primitive nature, our desire to excel, suppress, investigate, overpower, strengthen and advance ...

Should those who work on ethics welcome or resist moves to open access publishing? This paper analyses arguments in favour and against the increasing requirement for open access publishing and considers their implications for bioethics research. In the context of biomedical science, major funders are increasingly mandating open access as a condition of funding and such moves are also common in other disciplines. Whilst there has been some debate about the implications of open-access for the social sciences and humanities, there has been little if any discussion about the implications of open access for ethics. This is surprising given both the central role of public reason and critique in ethics and the fact that many of the arguments made for and against open access have been couched in moral terms. In what follows I argue that those who work in ethics have a strong interest in supporting moves towards more open publishing approaches which have the potential both to inform and promote richer and more
At the onset of Life, Liberty and the Defense of Dignity, Leon Kass gives us a status report on where we stand today: Human nature itself lies on the operating table, ready for alteration, for eugenic and psychic enhancement, for wholesale redesign. In leading laboratories, academic and industrial, new creators are confidently amassing their powers and quietly honing their skills, while on the street their evangelists are zealously prophesying a posthuman future. For anyone who cares about preserving our humanity, the time has come for paying attention. Trained as a medical doctor and biochemist, Dr. Kass has become one of our most provocative thinkers on bioethical issues. Now, in this brave and searching book, he also establishes himself as a prophetic voice summoning us to think deeply about the new biomedical technologies threatening to take us back to the future envisioned by Aldous Huxley in Brave New World. As in Huxleys dystopia, where life has been smoothed out by genetic manipulation

You may have heard of Maria del Carmen Bousada, the woman who holds the world record for being oldest woman to be pregnant and give birth. She was 66 years old when she underwent in vitro fertilization. The subsequent birth of her two twins created news worldwide, and stirred afresh the ongoing debate as to the implications and responsibilities related to fertility efforts (particularly given the fact that she lied to the fertility clinic and said she was 55-years old, the maximum threshold for females who want to undergo artificial insemination).. That debate has taken on a new twist with the announcement last week that Ms. Bousada has died at age 69, leaving behind her now-two-year old twins babies. (So much for her assurances to the fertility doctors that because her own mother lived to be 101 years old, she too would be old enough to properly care for the children.). As with any of the bioethical issues that are addressed on this blog, the proverbial slippery slope is a constant theme. And ...

Bioethics is a multidisciplinary study that examines the ethical treatment of patients in a medical environment. The field of bioethics emerged in the 1960s and is an important facet of both biology and philosophy. The field of bioethics developed in an environment of mutual discussion between people of faith and more secular philosophers. Technological advancements such as in vitro fertilization (IVF), genetic engineering, and stem cell research have opened the door to many healthy debates about technological capabilities and the development of the embryo. To make informed judgments and participate effectively in debating these issues each person should understand the science behind the ethical debates Advances in biology and medicine mean that there are important personal issues that arise concerning questions about the start and end of life. The course is not about deciding what is right or wrong, but to stimulate a significant discussion about issues such as: Should we encourage/regulate ...

In The Prenatal Person: Ethics from Conception to Birth Norman Ford has provided an important, thoughtful, accessible account of a natural law view of early human life. Ford has written an engaging book that puts this fundamental moral position about persons and prenatal life in conversation with critics of the position, common morality, the Christian tradition, and many of the complex clinical problems of contemporary medicine. The book is a timely contribution to bioethics and many of the controversies surrounding embryonic stem cell and cloning research. It takes up one of the most important positions in these debates and gives a clear, concise development of the natural law tradition. Ford very clearly lays out a natural law position on early human life and then draws out the implications of that position for many current and important issues in bioethics. He writes with clarity as he works through the foundational issues to the complex clinical and research questions.. Of course there are ...

When Breath Becomes Air (Kalinithi) "At the age of thirty-six, on the verge of completing a decades worth of training as a neurosurgeon, Paul Kalanithi was diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer. One day he was a doctor treating the dying, and the next he was a patient struggling to live. And just like that, the future he and his wife had imagined evaporated. When Breath Becomes Airchronicles Kalanithis transformation from a naïve medical student "possessed," as he wrote, "by the question of what, given that all organisms die, makes a virtuous and meaningful life" into a neurosurgeon at Stanford working in the brain, the most critical place for human identity, and finally into a patient and new father confronting his own mortality." ...
David Bentley Hart. To ask what the legacy of John Paul IIs Theology of the Body might be for future debates in bioethics is implicitly to ask what relevance it has for current debates in bioethics. And this creates something of a problem, because there is a real sense in which it has none at all - at least, if by "relevance" one means discrete logical propositions or policy recommendations that might be extracted from the larger context of John Pauls teachings so as to "advance the conversation" or "suggest a middle course" or "clarify ethical ambiguities." Simply said, the book does not offer arguments, or propositions, or (thank God) "suggestions." Rather, it enunciates with extraordinary fullness a complete vision of the spiritual and corporeal life of the human being; that vision is a self-sufficient totality, which one is free to embrace or reject as a whole.

A person must be pronounced dead before it is morally acceptable to remove his or her vital organs for the purpose of donating them. A person is considered dead if he or she has permanently lost brain function or when their heart has stopped beating and their lungs have stopped breathing for them. In Canada, a person must give consent for his or her organs to be removed after death for the purpose of donating them. If a persons wish is unknown, the family may give consent on his or her behalf. In Canada, as in most Western countries, there are more people in need of organs for transplantation than there are organs available. It is generally considered morally right to give organs first to the people who are the sickest and have waited the longest. In Ontario, the Trillium Gift of Life Network manages the list of people who are in need of organs. There are many questions considered when it comes to organ donation from a living donor. Is the donor making a free and informed decision to donate? ...

This weeks New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) carries an opinion piece (subscription required) pressing the concern that human-caused climate change should prompt a concerted effort to develop new methods of contraception and increase the ready availability of all forms of contraception worldwide. About 222 million women in the lowest-income countries need family planning services, the author says. About 40% of pregnancies (80 million out of a worldwide annual total of 210 million) are unintended, with similar rates in higher- and lower-income nations, it is said. Past Malthusian fears about overpopulation had subsided with improved agriculture and a leveling, or even declining, fertility rate in many countries, but that appears now to have created a false sense of security, because the worlds population continues to grow, global warming and resource depletion are threatening sustainability of the ecosystem, and "naturalists" warn that half of all species living today may be extinct by ...

Dr. David Armstrong, scientific director of the test-tube clinic at the University of Western Ontario, does not appear to know how rapidly life develops. In an interview with Rose Dimanno of the Toronto Star on February 12, Dr. Armstrong defended his recommendation that human embryos be mass-produced and kept up to 28 days for experiments because, he said "up to 28 days, theyre still at the four-cell stage." Armstrong made his recommendation at a recent meeting of the Medical Research ... (Continue reading). ...
For a time after Jesses death, Paul Gelsinger had defended the University of Pennsylvania gene therapy team believing they had done their best and had not deliberately risked Jesses life. He blamed the FDA for withholding vital information about this experiment from public scrutiny, information that would have made the researchers cautious about conducting the fatal experiment on his son. Now he is angry at both the FDA and the University of Pennsylvania team ...
Asimov had some good ideas, but we need to, you know, actually write some laws now:. As they become smarter and more widespread, autonomous machines are bound to end up making life-or-death decisions in unpredictable situations, thus assuming-or at least appearing to assume-moral agency. Weapons systems currently have human operators "in the loop", but as […]. ...

Speaker: Bernard Dickens, OC, PhD, LLD, LLD(hc), FRSC, Professor Emeritus of Health Law and Policy, Faculty of Law, Faculty of Medicine and Joint Centre for Bioethics, University of Toronto. Ethical or moral assessments of preserved human embryos cover a comprehensive spectrum. Some regard them as equivalent to born human beings, entitled to a full right to life, while at the other extreme, others treat them like embryos of other animal species, as objects or property. The issue will remain unresolved while approaches vary. Ethical and legal claims to protect human life "from conception" raise concerns of protection between in vitro fertilization and conception in vivo. Modern biology shows a high rate of spontaneous loss of embryos in nature, raising the ethical concern of consistency of response to such loss. Law is more settled in ruling that preserved embryos cannot be treated as persons, but slow to treat them as property, and legislation may prohibit their commercial sale. Individuals may ...
