dc.description.abstractBioethics of the so-called "peripheral countries" should be preferably concerned with the persistent situations, that is, with those problems that are still happening, but should not happen anymore in the 21st century. The resulting conflicts cannot be exclusively analyzed based on the ethical theories (or bioethical) arriving from "central countries". The authors alert for the increasing depoliticization of moral conflicts and for the lack of capacity of human indignation. The indiscriminate utilization of bioethics justification as a neutral methodological tool softens and even cancels out the gravity of different problems, even those that might result in the most profound social distortion. The current study sets as a theoretical reference the finitude of natural resources (which are allo of them...) and corporality, pleasures and pain. From these premises and the introduction of the concept that equity means "to treat unevenly the unequal", the authors introduced a proposal of a hard bioethics or intervention bioethics, in support of the interest and the historical rights of the population economically and socially excluded from the international development practice.en
