Will international human rights subsume medical ethics? Intersections in the UNESCO Universal Bioethics Declaration

Journal of Medical Ethics 31 (3):173-178 (2005)
Abstract
The professional regulatory system known as medical ethics has been one of the most visionary and socially valuable creations of the medical profession. Its beneficial influence has extended beyond physician/patient relations, to the shaping of many key humanistic and egalitarian features of the world’s legal and political institutions. The continued existence of medical ethics as a professionally influential normative system, however, is being challenged by international human rights. The UNESCO Universal Declaration on Bioethics and Human Rights, is likely to be an important point of intersection in this process.
