The Moral Bases of Contingency Planning
Johnson, James T.
Hastings Center Report. 1982 Apr; 12(2): 19-20.
The author defends the Defense Department's Civilian-Military Contingency Hospital System as a responsible approach to fulfilling the moral obligation to care for noncombatants injured in any war. He argues that wounded military personnel are noncombatants, that wars often have an accidental character similar to that of natural disasters, that the justice or injustice of a particular war is irrelevant to the obligation to care for its victims, and that there is no moral rationale for separating the civilian and military spheres in contingency planning.
