The common good in a secular society: The relevance of a Roman catholic notion to the healthcare allocation debate
Journal of Medicine and Philosophy 18 (6):569-587 (1993)
AbstractThis essay analyzes Roman Catholic social teaching on the right to health care and the legitimacy of healthcare rationing. It considers that discussion at two levels: (1) the specific warrants that undergird key terms; and (2) the accessibility and applicability of those warrants to policy choices in a secular society. The essay concludes with a number of broader reflections meant to reserve an appropriate place for religious voices in the process of policy-making, as distinguished from its justification.
