Abstract
I am inclined to agree with Arthur Caplan that a less invasive means than was employed in the case of Ashley X would have been preferable. But, such means do not, as yet, exist. Given these circumstances, what are the issues that the bioethics committee needs to consider prior to making a recommendation to the surgeon?
