    Treating or Killing? The Divergent Moral Implications of Cardiac Device Deactivation.Bryan C. Pilkington - 2020 - Journal of Medicine and Philosophy 45 (1):28-41.
    In this article, I argue that there is a moral difference between deactivating an implantable cardioverter defibrillator and turning off a cardiac pacemaker. It is, at least in most cases, morally permissible to deactivate an ICD. It is not, at least in most cases, morally permissible to turn off a pacemaker in a fully or significantly pacemaker-dependent patient. After describing the relevant medical technologies—pacemakers and ICDs—I continue with contrasting perspectives on the issue of deactivation from practitioners involved with these devices: (...)

    Dignity, Health, and Membership: Who Counts as One of Us?Bryan C. Pilkington - 2016 - Journal of Medicine and Philosophy 41 (2):115-129.
    This essay serves as an introduction to this issue of the Journal of Medicine and Philosophy. The five articles in this issue address a range of topics from the human embryo and substantial change to conceptions of disability. They engage claims of moral status, defense of our humanity, and argue for an accurate and just classification of persons of different communities within a healthcare system. I argue in this essay that though their concerns are diverse, the authors in this issue (...)

    Educating ethically during COVID-19.Bryan C. Pilkington, Victoria Wilkins & Daniel Brian Nichols - 2021 - International Journal of Ethics Education 6 (1):177-193.
    One of the perplexing features of an infectious disease is the damage it causes, not only to physical health, but to mental health and to social relationships. This tension between the separation that is required for safety and the human need for contact is especially felt by institutions of higher education. Many such institutions not only educate students but seek to foster the kinds of communities which have thrived on personal interaction and shared physical space. Different institutions have responded to (...)

    Christopher Meyers attempts a utilitarian defense of the deception of patients when the purported harms of truthful disclosure outweigh its benefits. He suggests that honesty i...

    Conscience Dissenters and Disagreement: Professions are Only as Good as Their Practitioners.Bryan C. Pilkington - 2021 - HEC Forum 33 (3):233-245.
    In this paper, I consider the role of conscience in medical practice. If the conscientious practice of individual practitioners cannot be defended or is incoherent or unreasonable on its own merits, then there is little reason to support conscience protection and to argue about its place in the current medical landscape. If this is the case, conscience protection should be abandoned. To the contrary, I argue that conscience protection should not be abandoned. My argument takes the form of an analysis (...)

    Remember Evil: Remaining Assumptions In Autonomy-Based Accounts Of Conscience Protection.Bryan C. Pilkington - 2019 - Journal of Bioethical Inquiry 16 (4):483-488.
    Discussions of the proper role of conscience and practitioner judgement within medicine have increased of late, and with good reason. The cost of allowing practitioners the space to exercise their best judgement and act according to their conscience is significant. Misuse of such protections carve out societal space in which abuse, discrimination, abandonment of patients, and simple malpractice might occur. These concerns are offered amid a backdrop of increased societal polarization and are about a profession which has historically fought for (...)

    On Omissions and Artificial Hydration and Nutrition.Bryan C. Pilkington - 2014 - Journal of Medicine and Philosophy 39 (4):430-443.
    Understanding what sorts of things one might be responsible for is an important component of understanding what one should do in situations where the administration of artificial hydration and nutrition are required to sustain the life of a patient. Relying on work done in the philosophy of action and on moral responsibility, I consider the implications of omitting the administration of artificial hydration and nutrition and instances in which the omitting agent would and would not be responsible for the death (...)

    Team-teaching an interdisciplinary undergraduate bioethics course.Jennifer L. Hess & Bryan C. Pilkington - 2020 - International Journal of Ethics Education 5 (2):233-241.
    The authors, one a trained geneticist and the other a trained ethicist, designed and team-taught a bioethics course where nineteen third- and fourth-year undergraduate students were enrolled at Aquinas College in Grand Rapids, Michigan, during the fall 2016 semester. The syllabus, including democratically-chosen ethical debate topics, peer-led student working groups, and varied assessment methods were novel aspects of the course. The students, being either philosophy or biology majors or minors, successfully completed the course and indicated being highly satisfied with the (...)
