Ethics: Public and Private
Capron, Alexander Morgan
Hastings Center Report. 1994 Nov-Dec; 24(6): 26-27.
...Any new federal advisory body -- especially one freed of the cramped scope and inappropriate organization in the draft charter for the National Bioethics Advisory Commission -- will benefit enormously from the work of scholars at universities and ethics centers, of professional associations, of grassroots groups, and of the several state ethics commissions. It may be that "taken together, these entities embody just the kind of authority that our democratic and pluralistic system encourages." In the absence of a broadly constituted federal commission there is very little way that these disparate threads can be "taken together" in a manner that captures public attention and that has a real chance of influencing the development of ethically justifiable professional and public policy.
