  • BioEdge: Guantanamo nurse refuses to participate in force-feedings
    to Mr Dhiab the discrepancy between military descriptions of force feeding and the reality before we came here we were told a different story The story we were told was completely the opposite of what I saw Other nurses have voiced their concern about the practice according to Mr Dhiab but said they had no power to object Mr Dhiab says he often heard comments to the effect of Listen we have no choice We are worried about our job our rank Force feeding has been ongoing at the prison since men started hunger striking in peaceful protest at their detention without charge or trial Last year more than 100 men participated in a mass hunger strike at worsening conditions and indefinite detention after President Obama closed the office charged with closing the prison That office has since reopened but 149 men the majority of whom have been cleared for release remain imprisoned Cori Crider commented This is a historic stand by this nurse who recognized the basic humanity of the detainees and the inhumanity of what he was being asked to do He should be commended He should also be permitted to continue to give medical care to prisoners on the base but exempted from a practice he rightly sees as a violation of medical ethics And in a comment piece in The Guardian she added Since it isn t technically a disciplinary matter and frankly even if it were the rest of the doctors and nurses at Gitmo ought to join their colleague s boycott They should return to first principle of medicine which is patient autonomy They should insist on using force feeding only when absolutely necessary and in ways that minimize not maximize the suffering it causes a compromise my client would accept In so doing

  • Francesca Minerva and Roger Trigg discuss conscientious objection in medicine
    a solution that safeguards and protects the health of the patients as a priority In a response to Minerva Oxford theologian and ethicist Roger Trigg argues that conscientious objection is a necessary part of the practice of medicine Once we discount conscientious moral reasoning medicine is reduced to a technical issue about procedures without any regard to their effect on the greater human good In the case of abortion he suggests that high rates of conscientious objection might indicate a need to reconsider the original policy One problem with abortion is that for the most part those making the political decision are not those who have to implement the policy If the latter object in sufficiently high numbers to make the policy hard to implement that might be a reason for assuming there could be something wrong with what was being proposed MORE ON THESE TOPICS abortion conscientious objection discrimination This article is published by Xavier Symons 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

  • BioEdge: Conscientious objectors barred from qualification in UK
    Failure to complete the syllabus renders candidates ineligible for the award of an FSRH Diploma The restrictions effect not just Roman Catholic professionals but practitioners of other Christian denominations as well In an interview with the Telegraph Dr Peter Saunders head of the Christian Medical Fellowship said If you look at non Catholic Christians there would be many who may have no objection to contraception and see it as responsible behaviour but who draw the line at prescribing contraceptives which are meant to be taken after fertilisation David Jones director of the Anscombe Bioethics Centre in Oxford said This is a form of unjust discrimination against professionals on the basis of their personal beliefs and indirectly a form of discrimination against patients who share the same beliefs and who may wish to be treated by professionals with a sympathetic understanding of their position MORE ON THESE TOPICS conscientious objection contraception discrimination This article is published by Xavier Symons 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

  • BioEdge: Conscientious objection to “patriarchal norms”
    abortion or to prescribe contraception But a request which reinforces patriarchal norms is different Swedish ethicists surveyed about 1000 general practitioners and 1000 gynaecologists They report in the Journal of Medical Ethics that a small majority would agree to the woman s request However a large minority supported by the Swedish community insist that they would never do so In other words conscientious objection to patriarchal norms is socially acceptable even if it involves refusing a woman s fully informed request for a medical procedure the political message in Sweden is that hymen operations should be considered a non option and that the appropriate response to such requests should be information about the medical aspects of sexuality and human rights and if necessary referral to police or social authorities for protection The main argument for this practice is that Swedish society should take a stand against practices expressing control of female sexuality The official Swedish viewpoint hence expresses a zero tolerance policy against patriarchal norms and values Opposition to these practices in Sweden is so vehement that doctors try to dissuade women If this fails it is not illegal to perform them but they do so reluctantly and secretly The authors favour the pragmatic policy followed by doctors in the Netherlands There doctors inform women of the issues involved but do the procedure if they insist This allows them to give women better health care MORE ON THESE TOPICS conscience conscientious objection 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
