    Facing a Post-Truth Era, a Fierce Commitment to Data Must Guide the Abortion Debate.Charles C. Camosy & Kristin Collier - 2020 - The National Catholic Bioethics Quarterly 20 (1):41-45.
    Academic medical ethics must be a bulwark against a disturbing trend toward post-truth cultures. Activism of course has its place in massive cultural debates like abortion. The fact that so many people care so deeply about these debates is part of what makes them so important. But especially when coming from clinicians, academics, and others to whom we entrust the care of our public discourse, interventions into the debates must be disciplined by a thoroughgoing commitment to engage with the available (...)

    Persistent Misunderstandings About Being Transgender and Their Effect on Pediatric Care.Gerald D. Coleman - 2020 - The National Catholic Bioethics Quarterly 20 (1):29-39.
    There is no paucity of academic studies, medical literature, or media attention given to concerns about gender ideology and being transgender. When reporting their findings, however, some researchers and practitioners working from a purely secular perspective overstep medical observations to make metaphysical pronouncements. This causes considerable confusion and stifles dialogue that could occur if the line between medicine and philosophy were clearly delineated. Properly understood, transgender describes an observable distress due to incongruence between one’s birth sex and gender identity. Conversely, (...)

    Examining Body Integrity Identity Disorder Through Theological Ethics.Benedict Guevin - 2020 - The National Catholic Bioethics Quarterly 20 (1):93-110.
    Body identity integrity disorder is experienced by a small percentage of the population, whose idea of how they should look does not match their actual physical form. The most common manifestation of BIID is the desire to have a specific limb amputated. In a small number of cases, the desire is not for the removal of a limb, but to be blind or paralyzed. There has been a lot of discussion regarding the possible physiological, neurological, or psychological etiologies of BIID. (...)

    Integrating Spirituality and Mental Health Services.Matthew McWhorter - 2020 - The National Catholic Bioethics Quarterly 20 (1):111-133.
    Contemporary mental health professionals exhibit interest in integrating spirituality into the services they provide to clients. This clinical integration raises questions about both the goals of mental health services and the professional relevance of mental health providers’ spiritual competency. Drawing on the Christian anthropology of St. Thomas Aquinas, Benedict Ashley’s approach to psychotherapy differentiates psychopharmacological, psychotherapeutic, and spiritual approaches on the basis of the different domains of a client’s personality. These domains are the focus of different professions, and Ashley’s account (...)

    Two Theories of Action and the Permissibility of Abortion.Elisabeth Parish - 2020 - The National Catholic Bioethics Quarterly 20 (1):59-72.
    An exchange between Christopher Tollefsen and Steven Jensen highlights the contrast between a theory of natural law that relies purely first-person account of intention and one that relies more on elements from the physical world. Tollefsen, a proponent of New Natural Law theory, argues that the fetus’s death in the Phoenix case was an unintended side effect of saving the mother’s life. Jensen criticizes NNL generally and particularly for this conclusion. He argues that facts outside the agent make this procedure (...)

    Brain–Machine Interfaces and the Integral Person.Christopher M. Reilly - 2020 - The National Catholic Bioethics Quarterly 20 (1):47-58.
    Physically enhancing brain–machine interfaces communicate elec­tronically with the patient’s mind in both directions. They present significant opportunities to improve a patient’s health and to restore his or her physical function, but they also present problems for the patient’s sense of agency and self. This is exacerbated by notions of extension and enhancement that are not grounded in an authentic human anthropology that describes the inherently dignified person as an integral union of body and soul.

    On Performing Reinfibulation in Catholic Hospitals.Addison S. Tenorio - 2020 - The National Catholic Bioethics Quarterly 20 (1):75-92.
    Female genital mutilation/cutting is a multifaceted, culturally entrenched issue. In response to the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ resources dealing with the issue of FGM/C, this paper explores what resources sexual ethics can provide Catholic hospitals facing this issue, specifically with regards to the request for reinfibulation. FGM/C ought not to be treated as a univocal medical practice; rather, in natural law evaluations of the act, the practice of reinfibulation ought to be separately acknowledged. Reinfibulation cannot be properly considered (...)
