Millner, Vaughn S.; Hanks, Robert B.
Journal of Counseling & Development, v80 n1 p57-63 Win 2002
Induced abortion is one of the most controversial moral issues in American culture, but counselor value struggles regarding abortion are seldom addressed in counseling literature. This article considers the conflictual nature of the ethical principles of autonomy, fidelity, justice, beneficence, and nonmaleficence as they can occur within the context of the counseling relationship, particularly with clients considering abortion.
