The Inner Workings of an Ethics Committee: Latest Battle Over Jehovah's Witnesses
Hastings Center Report. 1988 Feb/Mar; 18(1): 15-20.
Jehovah's Witnesses who refuse blood transfusions on religious grounds have long created ethical dilemmas for those in the medical profession trying to serve them. A bioethicist working in a clinical setting explores how one hospital ethics committee grappled with the additional problem of pregnant Jehovah's Witnesses, including the complex interdependence of maternal and fetal rights.
