  • US Supreme Court considers religious exemptions to Obamacare
    a form directing insurers to provide contraceptives is a form of co operation in a morally illicit government program Last July the Little Sisters of the Poor lost their case against the mandate at the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals The court ruled that the accommodation offered by the administration to religious groups like the sisters did not put a substantial burden on their religious beliefs and relieves them from complicity in actions they find objectionable Many see the case as misguided The New York Times published a scathing editorial arguing the plaintiff s case was fallacious In a secular society religious freedom demands respect and accommodation not a veto over government action that benefits others who believe differently Others welcomed the supreme court s decision Michael Warsaw chairman and CEO of EWTN Global Catholic Network said Today s decision by the US Supreme Court to take up the HHS contraceptive mandate cases including the one filed by the Little Sisters of the Poor is wonderful news MORE ON THESE TOPICS Church and State contraception religious liberty US This article is published by Xavier Symons and BioEdge under a Creative Commons licence You may republish it or translate it free

  • Mandating compassion
    want to conform to the requirements or will feel frustrated because they are unable to achieve them He continues The demand for compassion may also have a negative impact on the service users We have all become adept at recognising and discounting enforced emotions this sort of policy ignores that such measures are limited by practical constraints Wang doubts that a formalization of emotion could ever avoid the usual obstacles As long as contractualism remains the mainstay of doctor patient relationships we can expect compassion to always take a backseat Any rule concocted to demand compassion from the healthcare professional is unlikely to yield results Some agree with Wang but argue that it is not a question of structural change we need to get rid of emotional expectations altogether In a 2013 post on the blog Practical Ethics Hannah Maslen suggested that emotions may not be as important as many think that lack of emotional compassion does not necessarily result in cruelty or incompetence Whilst many doctors and nurses and surgeons will care about their patients they should not be expected to experience strong emotions towards them or their situations In the recently released medical ethics book Health Humanities Paul Crawford and Brian Adams et al call for a more nuanced approach to educing compassion in healthcare practitioners The development of more compassionate health services will need to go deeper than mandating angelic nurses or setting up initiatives for compassion to be poured in as a skill through linear or values based criteria Compassionate care will be achieved in and by governments and their healthcare organizations designing low threat compassion generating spaces and processes rather than through spurious compassion training of the workforce MORE ON THESE TOPICS clinical practice healthcare policy professional virtue This article is published by Xavier Symons

  • Donor conception: 10 years without anonymity
    presented their theories on how anonymity affects sperm donation and donor conception Dr Jo Rose herself a donor conceived child argued that donor conceived children should as a matter of course have more support and the right to access full and complete information about their genetic parent particularly because wrong and incomplete medical history kills people Eric Blyth professor of social work at the University of Huddersfield argued for the retrospective identification of donors before 2005 Blyth suggested that it was unfair that the 20 000 children conceived before this cut off date were being deprived of familial information Julia Tizzard of the HFEA argued that unreliable metrics make it very difficult to measure the real impact of the legislation Some sperm bank managers say anonymity has decreased rates of donation while others say the impact has been negligible MORE ON THESE TOPICS donor anonymity IVF UK 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 contact us for

  • No anonymity means less sperm donation in UK
    executive of the sperm bank Laura Witjens says the shortage is the result of two factors the difficulty of finding suitable donors and the need for a nationwide advertising campaign If 100 guys enquire 10 will come through for screenings and maybe one becomes a donor It takes hundreds of guys Witjens said Other sperm bank executives see the removal of anonymity from the legislation as the chief cause of the decrease in donation the changes have decimated our sperm donation programme It had a devastating impact said Prof Charles Kingsland founder of the Hewitt Fertility Centre in Liverpool Women s Hospital Kingsland s sperm bank needs another 200 donors to keep up with demand Witjens says she is planning a massive recruitment campaign drawing upon the successful sperm donor advertising campaigns in Demark If I advertised saying Men prove your worth show me how good you are then I would get hundreds of donors she told The Guaridan That s the way the Danish do it They proudly say this is the Viking invasion exports from Denmark are beer lego and sperm It s a source of pride She is reluctant however to overemphasise male vanity as this may upset future donor conceived children Does that make it more complicated Hell yes A November advertisement for the sperm bank is planned which asks men to consider giving an alternative Christmas gift MORE ON THESE TOPICS donor anonymity sperm banks sperm donation UK 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 contact us for permission and fees Some
