Civil Disobedience, Conscientious Objection, and Evasive Noncompliance: A Framework for the Analysis and Assessment of Illegal Actions in Health Care
Childress, James F.
Journal of Medicine and Philosophy. 1985 Feb; 10(1): 63-83.
The author explores some of the conceptual and moral issues raised when health care professionals or laypersons disobey laws related to health care. He sketches a framework for the moral justification of three major types of illegal action--civil disobedience, conscientious objection or refusal, and evasive noncompliance--and then applies his conceptual and normative frameworks to particular bioethical issues, such as "mercy killing" and treatment refusal.
