Bioethics No Longer Confined to the Medical Profession

Lab work

Bioethics covers topics ranging from end-of-life decisions to whom should get organ transplants.

In the fall issue of Pillars,Rev. John L. Young, C.S.C., volunteer clinical professor in the Law and Psychiatry Department at the Yale University School of Medicine, discusses bioethics in the context of faith and science.

“Over the last generation or so, the term bioethics has taken over for what had been called medical ethics, reflecting the fact that the field can no longer belong only to members of the medical profession,” Fr. Young said.
