Overview

Arguing that without access to current scientific expertise, the development of bioethics lags behind modern reality, Pollard (biological sciences, Macquarie U., Australia) proposes the concept of bioscience ethics as the "interface between scientific endeavor and its application into acceptable forms of bioethical consensus." She applies this concept to a range of issues, including toxicology and cogenital disability in children, substance abuse and parenthood, ovulatory methods in birth control, euthanasia, recombinant DNA technologies, and human dominated ecosystems.
