What would you do? An Investigation into Jewish Biomedical Ethics

By Nina Beth Cardin

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

The editor of Sh'ma reminds readers of the four biomedical ethical dilemmas presented in the May 26th, 1995 issue. Case 1 asks whether pregnant women should undergo HIV testing; Case 2 asks whether abortion to reduce the number of fetuses resulting from fertility drugs is acceptable and what to do with extra embryos from in vitro fertilization; Case 3 asks whether a middle-aged man should be denied health insurance because he has a mutated gene for colon cancer; and case 4 asks whether a geneticist should tell a couple who want to know if a second child will have cystic fibrosis that the first child is not the father's.
