Today on bioethics.net, you will find the November issue of the American Journal of Bioethics. Featured in last month’s issue of the journal are articles by Juli Murphy and colleagues from the Genetics and Public Policy Center at Johns Hopkins University who report on the attitudes of citizens regarding the return of individual results from large cohort genetic studies.
Also in the issue is an article by Jotkowitz and colleagues discussing the ethics of the Groningen Protocol and non-voluntary active euthanasia. These authors argue the protocol cannot be justified as it violates the basis tenants of medical ethics.
Finally, Adil Shamoo and Jack Schwartz present a proposal for achieving “universal and uniform” human subjects protections in the United States by having each state create human subjects research regulations in addition to federal regulations. This article inspired the editorial called Federalism, Federalism Everywhere which discusses this and other trends involving “states and bioethics”.
