  • BioEdge: Former Anglican head backs assisted suicide
    Christian and moral thing even though he realises that some will be shocked by his break with the official Church of England policy From a theological point of view Lord Carey seems to have crafted his own interpretation of the proper meaning of suffering for a Christian Some people have said on the issue of compassion that actually pain is a noble thing to bear pain and to say that we are suffering with you is in my view a very poor argument indeed he says in the video There is nothing noble about excruciating pain and I think we need as a nation to give people the right to decide their own fate MORE ON THESE TOPICS assisted suicide Church of England euthanasia suffering This article is published by Michael Cook and BioEdge under a Creative Commons licence You may republish it or translate it free of charge with attribution for non commercial purposes following these guidelines If you teach at a university we ask that your department make a donation Commercial media must contact us for permission and fees Some articles on this site are published under different terms Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by

  • BioEdge: Bioethics and the reproducibility crisis
    researchers from drug companies have reported that one quarter or fewer of high profile papers are reproducible It is not a new crisis either In 2005 in one of the most famous papers ever published in PLoS medical statistician John Ioannides asserted that most research findings are false for most research designs and for most fields But the humbling of scientists offers an opportunity to bioethicists if only they would grasp it argues Charles Foster in Oxford s Practical Ethics blog Bioethicists should seize this opportunity to assert their primacy to say that when the papers seen as canonical have been shown to be wrong or at best right only in one laboratory in one week their own philosophical conclusions immune as they should be and sometimes are from fashion experimental error commercial interest and grounded on essentially timeless conclusions about what constitutes human thriving should top the bill in debates about the direction of science There was never any legitimate place for the premise If you can do it you should do it The worthlessness of much supposedly unquestionable science should now make that premise wholly redundant But Foster says that his colleagues are unlikely to seize the opportunity because they suffer from a deplorable lack of self esteem Bioethicists are used to following meekly and respectfully in the wake of science to offering at best some tentative suggestions as to how scientific genius might best be channeled MORE ON THESE TOPICS bioethics reproducibility This article is published by Michael Cook and BioEdge under a Creative Commons licence You may republish it or translate it free of charge with attribution for non commercial purposes following these guidelines If you teach at a university we ask that your department make a donation Commercial media must contact us for permission and

  • BioEdge: New book chronicles history of British bioethics
    experts came to play a major role in discussing and helping to regulate issues that used to be left to doctors and scientists In Britain perhaps more than in the US the moral authority of individual bioethicists plays a prominent role bioethicists now play an equal and sometimes greater role than doctors and scientists in publicly discussing the ethics of issues such as assisted dying embryo research and genetic engineering Although the notion of moral expertise remains contested and many bioethicists refuse to acknowledge it they are often portrayed as what the Guardian called ethics experts Thanks to escalating mistrust of club regulation both in public and crucially in government they derive their authority from being expert outsiders who are independent from the profession or procedure under scrutiny For some reason a PDF of the book can be found here MORE ON THESE TOPICS bioethics book reviews UK This article is published by Michael Cook and BioEdge under a Creative Commons licence You may republish it or translate it free of charge with attribution for non commercial purposes following these guidelines If you teach at a university we ask that your department make a donation Commercial media must contact us
