Seimo lenkų frakcija stumia įstatymą uždrausti moteriai rinktis – gimdyti ar nutraukti nėštumą. Abortus draudžiančios įstatymo pataisos šiuo metu svarstomos Seimo Žmogaus teisių komitete.
The euthanasia of mentally ill or cognitively impaired patients is inherently controversial. Given the risk of fatal error, how many botched cases would it take to discredit the practice completely? If you said “any number greater than zero,” you would be interested in the physician-assisted death of a 74-year-old woman with dementia in the Netherlands in 2016.
Fertility clinics in San Francisco and Cleveland fail on same day. The temperature of the liquid nitrogen keeping the contents at icy levels unexpectedly fluctuated, possibly damaging the frozen eggs and embryos inside. “It hit me like a ton of bricks,” Kate said after reading what she calls the hospital’s “sterile” letter.
Recent news from the Netherlands illustrates how its euthanasia regime is among the world’s most permissive. It shows no signs of slowing down. Aurelia Browers, a 29-year-old mentally ill woman, was granted her wish and euthanized, demonstrating the slippery slope confronting those countries in which euthanasia and assisted-suicide laws are becoming ever laxer.

Pagal jį, asmuo laikomas sutinkančiu būti donoru, nebent būdamas gyvas tam raštu prieštarauja arba po mirties jo artimieji išreiškia kitokią valią.
In a 2017 article from India, researchers conducted a meta-analysis looking at vitamin D deficiency and asthma in children. They found a correlation—children with asthma were more likely to have a deficiency—but they did not find a causation. This week, just such a study has been flagged for ethical concerns.
An Ohio court will decide the fate of a transgender teen who is in what the judge describes as a “gut-wrenching situation.” The teen’s parents want court authority to stop their child from getting the treatment and therapy that was recommended by his medical team in what it characterizes as a possible life-or-death situation.
Gydytojai griebiasi už galvų matydami didėjantį skaičių vaikų, registruojamų odontologiniam gydymui taikant narkozę. Neretai už vaiką atsakingi tėvai užsidengia akis prieš šio metodo galimas rimtas pasekmes ir laikosi nuomonės, kad narkozė – geriausias išeitis.
