    Human Dignity, Human Rights, and Responsibility: The New Language of Global Bioethics and Biolaw.Yechiel Michael Barilan - 2012 - MIT Press.
    "Human dignity" has been enshrined in international agreements and national constitutions as a fundamental human right. The World Medical Association calls on physicians to respect human dignity and to discharge their duties with dignity. And yet human dignity is a term--like love, hope, and justice--that is intuitively grasped but never clearly defined. Some ethicists and bioethicists dismiss it; other thinkers point to its use in the service of particular ideologies. In this book, Michael Barilan offers an urgently needed, nonideological, and (...)

    Voluntary COVID-19 Vaccination of Children: A Social Responsibility.Margherita Brusa & Yechiel Michael Barilan - 2021 - Journal of Medical Ethics 47 (8):543-546.
    Nearly 400 million adults have been vaccinated against COVID-19. Children have been excluded from the vaccination programmes owing to their lower vulnerability to COVID-19 and to the special protections that apply to children’s exposure to new biological products. WHO guidelines and national laws focus on medical safety in the process of vaccine approval, and on national security in the process of emergency authorisation. Because children suffer much from social distancing, it is argued that the harms from containment measures should be (...)

    The Role of Doctors in Hunger Strikes.Yechiel Michael Barilan - 2017 - Kennedy Institute of Ethics Journal 27 (3):341-369.
    In the past decades, there has been a surge of hunger strikes, some of which involved mortalities and irreversible neuropsychiatric morbidities. The World Medical Association has published the “Malta Declaration” on the ethical conduct of doctors facing hunger-striking prisoners, forbidding force-feeding categorically. Four fundamental issues blight the Declaration. The first is a uniform approach to all prisoners’ hunger strikes, with no distinction among types of strikes and diverse psychic–social circumstances. The second is the labeling of life-saving force-feeding as “degrading and (...)
