    When Does Catholic Social Teaching Imply a Duty to be Vaccinated for the Common Good?Steven M. A. Bow - 2023 - The New Bioethics 29 (4):304-321.
    In 2017, Carson and Flood outlined a general duty to be vaccinated, arguing from Catholic social teaching on justice, love, solidarity and the common good. This necessarily relied on assumptions about the typical nature of vaccination, assumptions which do not always hold true in concrete situations. I identify twelve criteria that, where they hold, strengthen the particular duty to be vaccinated, and, if not met, weaken or reverse it. These pertain to the biological agent which vaccination aims to protect against, (...)

    Care for the Environment as a Consideration in Bioethics Discourse and Education.Pacifico Eric Eusebio Calderon & Mark Kiak Min Tan - 2023 - The New Bioethics 29 (4):352-362.
    This article argues that environmental considerations fall within the scope of medical bioethics, and there are implications specific to medical education. It endorses the need to expand the scope and epistemology of contemporary medical bioethics discourse by including themes related to environmental considerations. Our discussion begins by providing a brief history of environmental bioethics. It then offers a critique of three specific health and environmental issues, namely technology, toxics, and consumption, and discusses how these issues are key to articulating moral (...)

    Is It Possible to Allocate Life? Triage, Ageism, and Narrative Identity.Mahmut Alpertunga Kara - 2023 - The New Bioethics 29 (4):322-339.
    Triage protocols can exclude older patients for the sake of effectiveness and this may be defended as the older have already had their fair share of life, which can mean fair amounts or complete lives. Nevertheless, if life is considered as a narrative, mentioning amounts might be nonsensical. Narratives have a quality of unity; so, life events are fragments whose meanings are dependent on the meaning of the whole. Thus, time units do not represent a reliable measure of the content (...)

    Responsibility Arguments in Defence of Abortion: When One is Morally Responsible for the Creation of a Fetus.Timothy Kirschenheiter - 2023 - The New Bioethics 29 (4):340-351.
    I argue against responsibility arguments that offer a defence of abortion even on the assumption that the fetus is a person. I focus on argumentation originally offered by Judith Jarvis Thomson and then later defended by David Boonin. I offer thought experiments meant to show that, under certain conditions, one bears moral responsibility for creating a fetus. I then offer a positive argument for when one is morally responsible for the creation of a fetus. This argument relies on the presence (...)

    Are Physicians Obligated to Recommend a Plant-Based Diet? A Response to Maximilian Storz.Thomas Milovac - 2023 - The New Bioethics 29 (4):363-381.
    Maximilian Storz argues that physicians have an ethical obligation to recommend a plant-based diet to patients because such a diet: relieves certain chronic conditions, outperforms the Western diet (e.g. a diet containing animal products, among other things), and is ecologically sustainable. Contrary to these claims, I argue that a plant-based diet alone may not relieve chronic conditions, but potentially does so in combination with other lifestyle factors. With respect to the environment, I illuminate the landscape by discussing agricultural factors consistent (...)

    Public Health England and Co-Production with the Fetal Anomaly Screening Programme.Colette Lloyd, Elizabeth Corcoran & Lynn Murray - 2023 - The New Bioethics 29 (3):216-225.
    As the new Cell-free DNA (Cf-DNA) prenatal screening test for Down syndrome was being introduced into the UK’s fetal anomaly screening program, Down syndrome charities had an opportunity to participate. An experience of co-production where we were the minority voice then followed. This paper explores that process and our experience as a charity. Institutional and societal structures meant that it was difficult to be heard and a significant amount of bias was noted within the program. Consequently, our viewpoints were often (...)
