dc.description.abstractIn this paper, I address two rather different issues: 1) Are ethics committees in religious institutions constituted to defend institutional morality or are they to approach problems from a wider perspective?; and 2) Must the religious beliefs of an institution dictate which of a range of medically accepted services are to be made available to patients who seek hospital services? Ethics committees in religious institutions, like all hospital ethics committees, must represent many points of view: they serve the public as well as the hospital and are not in place to defend a particular faith. They are, in other words, not "morals committees" here to safeguard one point of view. I address and illustrate the second issue with a concrete problem from my own experience.en
