Ethical Issues in Health Services: A Report and Annotated Bibliography.
This publication identifies, discusses, and lists areas for further research for five ethical issues related to health services: 1) the right to health care; 2) death and euthanasia; 3) human experimentation; 4) genetic engineering; and, 5) abortion. Following a discussion of each issue is a selected annotated bibliography covering the years 1967 through 1969, with some articles from 1970. The periodicals surveyed for this study include the medical journals indexed in the "Index Medicus" as well as the most important theological and philosophical journals, prominent journals of opinion, and general interest magazines. Some books and government reports are also cited. The report is a response to the heightened professional and public interest in ethical issues which has resulted in a large body of literature. Articles were selected on the bases of fair representation of viewpoints and quality, that is, articles judged as clarifying and advancing the ethical discussions. (Author/DJB)
