Human life value and religious beliefs in medical practice and the ethics public debate.

Religion continues to be of major social importance, so the question needs to be asked: how can religious beliefs influence medical practice? A study published in the Journal of Medical Ethics  analysed the influence of religion on medical practice. A central point of this debate focuses on determining the human life value in the light of transcendence. The main goal of the paper is to defend the role of Christians in the public debate that affects medical ethics. See HERE our assessment on religion preserving bioethics independence.
