Bioethics and Natural Law: The Relationship in Catholic Teaching
Hehir, J. Bryan
Kennedy Institute of Ethics Journal. 1996 Dec; 6(4): 333-336.
In the discipline of Catholic moral theology, bioethics (traditionally described as medical ethics) has held a major place. The systematic development of bioethics has drawn principally upon a natural law ethic, supported by broader religious arguments. The purpose of this essay is to examine the status and role of natural law in Catholic teaching as it bears upon bioethics.
