Response to Medical Ethical Dilemmas

By Kenneth Kenigsberg

CLAL: the National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership, September 1, 1995

The author provides his perspective on the four biomethical ethics dilemmas presented in this issue of Sh'ma. For the first case, he is in favor of education for pregnant women and support for those who test HIV positive; for the second case he states that preemptive adoption of unused embryos should be arranged, without worrying about gender selective abortion as it is usually based on which is easiest to access; for the third case, he states that denying health care because of a gene has no sound logic as everyone has some condition that will cost money; for the fourth case, he argues against telling the parents.
