Commentary on Skene and Parker: The Role of a Church (Or Other Ideologically Based Interest Group) in Developing the Law -- a Plea for Ethereal Intervention
Journal of Medical Ethics 2002 August; 28(4): 219-220

We draw distinctions between doctrine and prejudice and between argument and ideology which we trust take the debate further. Finally we recommend an ethereal, democratic, and populist partial solution.
