    Numerous grounds have been offered for the view that healthcare workers have a duty to treat, including expressed consent, implied consent, special training, reciprocity (also called the social contract view), and professional oaths and codes. Quite often, however, these grounds are simply asserted without being adequately defended or without the defenses being critically evaluated. This essay aims to help remedy that problem by providing a critical examination of the strengths and weaknesses of each of these five grounds for asserting that (...)

    Pox Parties for Grannies? Chickenpox, Exogenous Boosting, and Harmful Injustices.Heidi Malm & Mark Christopher Navin - 2020 - American Journal of Bioethics 20 (9):45-57.
    Some societies tolerate or encourage high levels of chickenpox infection among children to reduce rates of shingles among older adults. This tradeoff is unethical. The varicella zoster virus (VZV) causes both chickenpox and shingles. After people recover from chickenpox, VZV remains in their nerve cells. If their immune systems become unable to suppress the virus, they develop shingles. According to the Exogenous Boosting Hypothesis (EBH), a person’s ability to keep VZV suppressed can be ‘boosted’ through exposure to active chickenpox infections. (...)

    Immigration Justice and the Grounds for Mandatory Vaccinations.Heidi Malm - 2015 - Kennedy Institute of Ethics Journal 25 (2):133-147.
    For well over a century, foreign nationals seeking permission to immigrate to the U.S. could be judged ‘inadmissible’ or otherwise excluded from consideration on the basis of their ‘health status.’ In particular, the Immigration Act of 1891 stated that “persons suffering from a loathsome or dangerous contagious disease” could, on that ground, be excluded from consideration, and the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952 listed seven health-related grounds for exclusion, among 31 grounds overall. Four decades later, the list of grounds (...)

    Harming Children to Benefit Others: A Reply.Heidi Malm & Mark Christopher Navin - 2020 - American Journal of Bioethics 20 (12):W1-W6.
    We are pleased to have received such a varied set of commentaries on our target article, “Pox Parties for Grannies? Chickenpox, Exogenous Boosting, and Harmful Injustices,” and we are thankful for the opportunity to respond to some of them here. We regret that space limitations preclude us from responding to each. In what follows we will begin by addressing commentaries that expand the application of our arguments. We will then correct some seeming misunderstandings about our distinctions, arguments and thesis. We (...)
