…It may be a difficult moment for bioethicists to stand against the tide – but if bioethicists are not prepared to get going when the going gets tough, what is the point of the field?

Is the stance of some of our seniors really an expression of their personal risk-aversion rather than one of ethical principle?

Bodily autonomy matters…
