    Subject Headings:
    • Bioethics -- Political aspects -- United States.
    • Conservatism -- United States.
    Abstract:
      "Conservative" bioethics is informed by a rich view of human personhood, a decent respect for the well-considered views of people across the political spectrum, and a philosophy of the state carefully calibrated to ensure that imperfect people can live together in community. The deepest disagreements between conservatives and liberals are rooted in different ways of understanding the moral ideal of equality.
    Greene, Mark.
  • To Restore Faith and Trust: Justice and Biological Access to Cellular Therapies
    [Access article in PDF]
    Subject Headings:
    • Stem cells -- Transplantation -- Social aspects -- United States.
    • African Americans -- Health and hygiene -- Economic aspects.
    • Stem cells -- Research -- United States -- Finance.
    Abstract:
      Stem cell therapies should be available to people of all ethnicities. However, most cells used in the clinic will probably come from lines of cells stored in stem cell banks, which may end up benefiting the majority group most. The solution is to seek additional funding, earmarked for lines that will benefit minorities and offered as a public expression of apology for past discrimination.
