Gender in Bioethics: Theory and Practice
Glover, Jacqueline J.
Theoretical Medicine. 1992 Dec; 13(4): 293-294.
Does the care perspective make a difference? Can it reach as far as we would like? It is the goal of this special issue on Gender in Bioethics: Theory and Practice to begin to address some of these important questions. In the first article, Virginia Sharpe provides a comprehensive and thoughtful analysis of how the orientations of justice and care are played out in medical ethical theory. In the second article, James Nelson argues that the more traditional approach in Bioethics to maternal-fetal conflicts is not useful, and that a care perspective is more appropriate. Thoughtful commentary on Nelson's article is provided by Rosemarie Tong. For readers new to the justice-care debate in moral theory, the following articles will provide an informative introduction. For those who are more familiar, it is hoped that you will be challenged by the extension of the debate to the practical issue of maternal-fetal conflicts.
