Brain Death

Wesley Smith is blogging around the Web on the sad death of a 50 year old Atlanta man whose family took the doctors and hospital to court. Wesley rightly notes the poor communication. The reporter is indeed a very bad communicator. I wonder about the reliability of the whole story because of the reporter’s description … Continue reading

Yamanaka has a conscience

“When I saw the embryo, I suddenly realized there was such a small difference between it and my daughters,” said Dr. Yamanaka. The New York Times article on Shinya Yamanaka, “Risk taking is in his genes,” (free one time registration necessary) should get the headline-writer in trouble for a sad pun. Instead, Dr. Yamanaka might … Continue reading

Limits on "I want" ethics

While we’re all waiting for the announcement that Shinya Yamanaka’s lab has or has not published on human embryonic-like stem cells dedifferentiated from adult stem cells . . .

Bioethics is biopolitics

Kathryn Hinsch, founder of the Women’s Bioethics Project and the Women’s Bioethics Blog recommended the questions and answers from an article by Joshua Perry published in the Journal of Legal Medicine. (It cost $32 to access – perhaps we ought to talk about open access in publishing.) Perry notes that others have noted that bioethics … Continue reading

Saletan stirs up bioethics blog

Wesley Smith’s “Secondhand Smoke” and Science Blog’s “Denialism Blog” both comment on William Saletan’s latest Slate column, “Rights and Wrongs: Liberals, progressives, and biotechnology.” I have to admit, that while I find Saletan slightly disorganized at times, he manages to make quite a few people disagree with him, and does it so well. You need … Continue reading

Animal Farm: Trojan Pigs and Devolution of Standards

Correction, here: Another blogger The same poster that found it necessary to rant that Fox and CBS wouldn’t advertise condoms on the Bioethics.net Blog also posted on the Women’s Bioethics Blog. Blog.bioethics.net has been “down” since I posted yesterday – Coincidence? (Update June 21 – they still haven’t posted my post.) There’s a link to … Continue reading

(Un)Ethical Science Journals

I guess the first question should be, “Where is the scientific and ethical justification for demanding public funding of science without public restraints?” The next is, “When there is public disagreement, what is the ethical way to conduct the discussion about the disagreement?” I’m sure that the answer to the second is not “hit and … Continue reading
