Religion, Race, and Reason: The Case of LJ
Journal of Clinical Ethics. 1995 Spring; 6(1): 73-77.
Bioethics consultation cannot be understood as only the abstract weighing of competing philosophical principles. Rather, consultation is shaped by a particular context, wherin individuals' choices are affected by societal prejudices and beliefs regarding race, religion, gender, power, and social class. The case of LJ will show how these issues play a role in medical and ethical decision making.
