The Traditionalist Jewish Physician and Modern Biomedical Ethical Problems
Journal of Medicine and Philosophy. 1983 Aug; 8(3): 225-241.
Rosner, a professor of medicine, discusses some of the ethical issues that confront the traditionally observant Jewish physician. He focuses particularly on special ethical problems for the observant Jewish medical student, including issues relating to Sabbath observance, procreation, and death and dying. He concludes that Jewish tradition imposes an obligation on the physician to heal and that a cardinal principle of Jewish ethics is the infinite value of human life, implying a corollary prohibition against any action that shortens it.
