Robert Card, professor of philosophy, has written an article that appears in the February issue of the Journal of Medical Ethics. Titled “Response: In Defence of Medical Tribunals and the Reasonability Standard for Conscientious Objection in Medicine,” the paper is a response to a piece published contemporaneously that critically examines some of Card’s ideas about how to properly approach conscientious objection within medicine—whether and how medical providers should be granted exemptions from performing a service with which they morally disagree. The paper prompted several other published commentaries, the result of which is a mini-symposium on reproductive ethics in the journal that discusses these ideas.
