    Provider Conscientious Refusal of Abortion, Obstetrical Emergencies, and Criminal Homicide Law.Lawrence Nelson - 2018 - American Journal of Bioethics 18 (7):43-50.
    Catholic doctrine’s strict prohibition on abortion can lead clinicians or institutions to conscientiously refuse to provide abortion, although a legal duty to provide abortion would apply to anyone who refused. Conscientious refusals by clinicians to end a pregnancy can constitute murder or reckless homicide under American law if a woman dies as a result of such a refusal. Such refusals are not immunized from criminal liability by the constitutional right to the free exercise of religion or by statutes that confer (...)

    Confronting deep moral disagreement: The president's council on bioethics, moral status, and human embryos.Lawrence J. Nelson & Michael J. Meyer - 2005 - American Journal of Bioethics 5 (6):33 – 42.
    The report of the President's Council on Bioethics, Human Cloning and Human Dignity, addresses the central ethical, political, and policy issue in human embryonic stem cell research: the moral status of extracorporeal human embryos. The Council members were in sharp disagreement on this issue and essentially failed to adequately engage and respectfully acknowledge each others' deepest moral concerns, despite their stated commitment to do so. This essay provides a detailed critique of the two extreme views on the Council (i.e., embryos (...)

    Respecting What We Destroy: Reflections on Human Embryo Research.Michael J. Meyer & Lawrence J. Nelson - 2001 - Hastings Center Report 31 (1):16-23.
    The thought that human embryos could command moral respect yet also be acceptably used in medical research has struck some as incoherent. Given some assumptions about why they deserve respect, however, the thought is not objectionable, indeed not even unusual.

    RETHINKING the Ethics of Physician Participation in Lethal Injection EXECUTION.Lawrence Nelson & Brandon Ashby - 2011 - Hastings Center Report 41 (3):28-37.
    Though there are good arguments against physician participation in executions, physicians should be allowed to make their own decisions about whether they will participate, and professional medical organizations should not flatly destroy the careers of those who do.

    Forgoing Medically Provided Nutrition and Hydration in Pediatric Patients.Lawrence J. Nelson, Cindy Hylton Rushton, Ronald E. Cranford, Robert M. Nelson, Jacqueline J. Glover & Robert D. Truog - 1995 - Journal of Law, Medicine and Ethics 23 (1):33-46.
    Discussion of the ethics of forgoing medically provided nutrition and hydration tends to focus on adults rather than infants and children. Many appellate court decisions address the legal propriety of forgoing medically provided nutritional support of adults, but only a few have ruled on pediatric cases that pose the same issue.The cessation of nutritional support is implemented most commonly for patients in a permanent vegetative state ). An estimated 4,000 to 10,000 American children are in the permanent vegetative state, compared (...)

    Is there any Indication for Ethics Evidence? An Argument for the Admissibility of some Expert Bioethics Testimony.Lawrence J. Nelson - 2005 - Journal of Law, Medicine and Ethics 33 (2):248-263.
    Professor Imwinkelried is surely right: the propriety of bioethicists serving as expert witnesses in litigation is problematic, and, I would add, it should remain problematic. Such testimony most certainly does not belong everywhere it will be offered by lawyers and litigants in an effort to advance their interests. Yet in contrast to some commentators, Imwinkelried and I both see a place for bioethicists serving as expert witnesses, although we differ significantly on how to understand and justify this place. In any (...)

    In this chapter, we consider, and reject, the claim that all elderly patients’ desires for suicide are irrational. The same reasons that have led to a growing acceptance for the rationality of suicide in terminal cases should lead us to view other desires for suicide as possibly rational. In both cases, desires for suicide can and do materialize in the absence of mental illness. Furthermore, we claim that desires for suicide can remain rational even in the face of some mental (...)

    Taking the Train to a World of Strangers: Health Care Marketing and Ethics.Lawrence J. Nelson, H. Westley Clark, Robert L. Goldman & Jean E. Schore - 1989 - Hastings Center Report 19 (5):36-43.
    The marketing of health care services raises the prospect that an ethic of strangers will govern relations between providers and patients. A fiduciary model that emphasizes honesty and public accountability, as well as the patient's good and avoiding unnecessary services, can keep marketing consistent with the ethical tradition of medicine.
