    Commodifying the Polyvalent Good of Health Care.M. Cathleen Kaveny - 1999 - Journal of Medicine and Philosophy 24 (3):207 – 223.
    This essay serves as an introduction to this issue of the Journal of Medicine and Philosophy on commodification and health care. The essay attempts to sharpen the articulation of generally expressed worries about the commodification of health care. It does so by defining commodification, analyzing three components of the good of health care, and attempting to assess how commodification might distort the shape of each of those components. Next, it explores how the good of health care might be distorted by (...)

    Diversity and Deliberation: Bioethics Commissions and Moral Reasoning.M. Cathleen Kaveny - 2006 - Journal of Religious Ethics 34 (2):311 - 337.
    This article considers the sort of diversity in perspective appropriate for a presidential commission on bioethics, and by implication, high-level governmental commissions on ethics more generally. It takes as its point of comparison the respective reports on human cloning produced by the National Bioethics Advisory Commission, appointed by President Bill Clinton, and George W. Bush's President's Council on Bioethics, under the leadership of its original chair, Leon Kass. I argue that the Clinton Commission Report exemplifies forensic diversity (the type of (...)

    Between Example and Doctrine Contract Law and Common Morality.M. Cathleen Kaveny - 2005 - Journal of Religious Ethics 33 (4):669-695.
    In "Democracy and Tradition," Jeffrey Stout contends that American constitutional democracy constitutes a well-functioning moral and political tradition that is not hostile to religion, although it does not depend on any specifically religious claims. I argue that Stout's contention is supported by a consideration of the great common law subject of contracts, as taught to first-year law students across the United States. First, I demonstrate how contract law can fruitfully be understood as a Maclntyrean tradition. Second, I illustrate the moral (...)

    The Nbac Report on Cloning : A Case Study in Religion, Public Policy and Bioethics.M. Cathleen Kaveny - 2006 - In David E. Guinn (ed.), Handbook of Bioethics and Religion. Oxford University Press.
    The report produced by the National Bioethics Advisory Commission at the request of President Bill Clinton, titled Cloning Human Beings, provides a good example of the two-pronged approach to religion in bioethics. The report merits careful scrutiny precisely because of the deftness with which it appears to negotiate the thorny questions surrounding the role of religion in public policy. Analysis of the structure, arguments, and rhetoric of the report reveals the theoretical and practical inadequacy of the currently reigning two-pronged approach (...)

    Conjoined Twins and Catholic Moral Analysis: Extraordinary Means and Casuistical Consistency.M. Cathleen Kaveny - 2002 - Kennedy Institute of Ethics Journal 12 (2):115-140.
    : This article draws upon the Roman Catholic distinction between "ordinary" and "extraordinary" means of medical treatment to analyze the case of "Jodie" and "Mary," the Maltese conjoined twins whose surgical separation was ordered by the English courts over the objection of their Roman Catholic parents and Cormac Murphy-O'Connor, the Roman Catholic Cardinal Archbishop of Westminster. It attempts to shed light on the use of that distinction by surrogate decision makers with respect to incompetent patients. In addition, it critically analyzes (...)

    Law and Christian Ethics: Signposts for a Fruitful Conversation.M. Cathleen Kaveny - 2015 - Journal of the Society of Christian Ethics 35 (2):3-32.
    This essay invites Christian ethicists to engage in a mutually beneficial conversation with the secular law, particularly the common law. It argues that the common law's feature of narrative accountability provides a natural bridge to Christian ethics. It also points out contact points between the two fields regarding normative concepts of persons, actions, norms, and the common good. Finally, it illustrates the possibilities of a conversation between law and Christian ethics by delving into the leading case on the doctrine of (...)
