    Dogs and Monsters: Moral Status Claims in the Fiction of Dean Koontz.Stephen W. Smith - 2016 - Journal of Medical Humanities 37 (1):35-51.
    This article explores conceptions of moral status in the work of American thriller author Dean Koontz.

This includes both uni-criterial theories and multi-criterial theories of moral status. After this examination, the article argues for exploring bioethics conceptions in popular fiction. Popular fiction is considered a rich source for analysis because it provides not only a good approximation of (...)

    Empirical Research in the Debate on Physician-Assisted Suicide and Voluntary Euthanasia.Stephen W. Smith - 2007 - Clinical Ethics 2 (3):129-132.
    This article explores the use of empirical data when considering whether to legalize physician-assisted suicide (PAS) and voluntary euthanasia. In particular, it focuses on the evidence available to the Select Committee for the Assisted Dying for the Terminally Ill Bill on whether or not covert euthanasia is taking place in the UK under the current prohibition of PAS and voluntary euthanasia. The article shows that there is an insufficient evidentiary basis to make any claims about the extent of covert euthanasia (...)
