It’s February and our next issue of AJOB is now available online.
This month the first of our Target Articles is authored by Peter Ubel and Robert Silbergelt on behavioral equipoise as an alternative to clinical equipoise. Their view is rebutted by Alex London, Jerry Menikoff, Katherine Wasson, and others.
Our second Target Article, by Dominic Wilkinson, argues for a new standard in withdrawing treatment from premature newborns. His article, “A Life Worth Giving?”, is debated by John Paris, Alexander Kon, and Robert Truog.
You can also hear Dr. Peter Ubel, one of this month’s Target Article authors, speaking about his AJOB Target Article on The Bioethics Channel.
Two great issues, two great articles, and many excellent debates. Take a look at this month’s AJOB here at bioethics.net.
