    What can European Principlism Teach about Public Funding of IVF? The Israeli Case.Noa Harel & Miriam Ethel Bentwich - 2021 - Journal of Bioethical Inquiry 18 (3):441-454.
    Fertility treatments, which are part of "assisted reproductive technologies" (ART), mainly undertaken through in vitro fertilization (IVF), offer the opportunity to infertile couples to conceive. IVF treatments are undertaken in Israel in significantly higher numbers than in the rest of the world. As such, Israel provides an important case-in-point for examining the validity of the actual claims used to justify the more generous public funding of IVF treatments at the policy level. In this article, we utilize an analytical philosophy approach (...)

    The Enemy as a Patient: What can be Learned from the Emotional Experience of Physicians and Why does it Matter Ethically?Gil Rubinstein & Miriam Ethel Bentwich - 2016 - Developing World Bioethics 17 (2):100-111.
    This qualitative research examines the influence of animosity on physicians during clinical encounters and its ethical implications. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with ten Israeli-Jewish physicians: four treated Syrians and six treated Palestinian terrorists/Hezbollah militants or Palestinian civilians. An interpretive phenomenological analysis was used to uncover main themes in these interviews. Whereas the majority of physicians stated they are obligated to treat any patient, physicians who treated Syrians exhibited stronger emotional expression and implicit empathy, while less referring to the presence of (...)

  4. Reclaiming liberty: from crisis to empowerment.Miriam Bentwich - 2012 - New York, NY: Palgrave-Macmillan.
    Based on a reconstruction of earlier liberal conceptions of liberty (the political theories of John Locke & J.S. Mill), this book stresses the empowering nature of liberal freedom and explains why such a concept of liberty better addresses two key contemporary challenges in liberal theory and praxis: wealth redistribution and multiculturalism."--Publisher's website.

    Process factors facilitating and inhibiting medical ethics teaching in small groups.Miriam Ethel Bentwich & Ya'arit Bokek-Cohen - 2017 - Journal of Medical Ethics 43 (11):771-777.
    Purpose To examine process factors that either facilitate or inhibit learning medical ethics during case-based learning. Methods A qualitative research approach using microanalysis of transcribed videotaped discussions of three consecutive small-group learning sessions on medical ethics teaching for three groups, each with 10 students. Results This research effort revealed 12 themes of learning strategies, divided into 6 coping and 6 evasive strategies. Cognitive-based strategies were found to relate to Kamin's model of critical thinking in medical education, thereby supporting our distinction (...)

    Reprogenetics, reproductive risks and cultural awareness: what may we learn from Israeli and Croatian medical students?Miriam Ethel Bentwich, Michal Mashiach-Eizenberg, Ana Borovečki & Frida Simonstein - 2019 - BMC Medical Ethics 20 (1):1-11.
    Background Past studies emphasized the possible cultural influence on attitudes regarding reprogenetics and reproductive risks among medical students who are taken to be “future physicians.” These studies were crafted in order to enhance the knowledge and expand the boundaries of cultural competence. Yet such studies were focused on MS from relatively marginalized cultures, namely either from non-Western developing countries or minority groups in developed countries. The current study sheds light on possible cultural influences of the dominant culture on medical students (...)

    Challenges to effective and autonomous genetic testing and counseling for ethno-cultural minorities: a qualitative study.Nehama Cohen-Kfir, Miriam Ethel Bentwich, Andrew Kent, Nomy Dickman, Mary Tanus, Basem Higazi, Limor Kalfon, Mary Rudolf & Tzipora C. Falik-Zaccai - 2020 - BMC Medical Ethics 21 (1):1-16.
    BackgroundThe Arab population in Israel is a minority ethnic group with its own distinct cultural subgroups. Minority populations are known to underutilize genetic tests and counseling services, thereby undermining the effectiveness of these services among such populations. However, the general and culture-specific reasons for this underutilization are not well defined. Moreover, Arab populations and their key cultural-religious subsets (Muslims, Christians, and Druze) do not reside exclusively in Israel, but are rather found as a minority group in many European and North (...)

    On political participation, rights and redistribution: a Lockean perspective.Miriam Bentwich - 2009 - Critical Review of International Social and Political Philosophy 12 (4):491-511.
    Various quantitative analyses have stressed the connection between lower socioeconomic status (SES) and low political participation. The general argument behind these studies was that since political participation is crucial for democracy, and since low SES compromises political participation, liberal democratic governments cannot afford such a compromise. This paper argues that presenting political participation as a democratic value, corresponding to a ‘positive’ right, places the implied argumentation of such studies in a potential conflict with classical liberalism and its contemporary ‘successors’, emphasizing (...)

    Reasons for and insights about HPV vaccination refusal among ultra‐Orthodox Jewish mothers.Rivka Zach & Miriam Ethel Bentwich - 2023 - Developing World Bioethics 23 (4):300-311.
    BackgroundVaccination against human papillomavirus (HPV) is a pivotal tool for preventing a significant cause of cervical cancer. One particular culturally recognized context associated with negative attitudes toward the HPV vaccine is the religiousness of parents. However, relatively speaking, there remains a scarcity of studies that have focused specifically on religious groups, especially non-Christian groups. PurposeTo better understand the basis for members of an ultra-Orthodox Jewish community to object to the HPV vaccine and how such objections can and cannot be reduced, (...)

    It’s About Scientific Secrecy, Dummy: A Better Equilibrium Among Genomics Patenting, Scientific Research and Health Care. [REVIEW]Miriam Bentwich - 2012 - Science and Engineering Ethics 18 (2):263-284.
    This paper offers a different pragmatic and patent-based approach to concerns regarding the negative effects of genetic-based patenting on advancing scientific research and providing adequate and accessible health care services. At the basis of this approach lies an explication of a mandatory provisional patented paper procedure (PPPA), designed for genetic-based patents and administered by leading scientific journals in the field, while officially acknowledged by the USPTO, and subsequently by other patent offices as well. It is argued that the uniqueness of (...)
