Non-therapeutic modification and self-interest: Reply to schramme

Bioethics 22 (8):455-456 (2008)
Abstract
In this article I reply to Thomas Schramme's argument that there are no good reasons for the prohibition of severe forms of voluntary non-therapeutic body modification. I argue that on paternalistic assumptions there is, in fact, a perfectly good reason.
