Articles with ethical, human rights, scientific and related issues will be provided here.
Contentious ethical issues in recent times have centred on aspects of human rights, including discrimination on the basis of sex, sexual preference or race, euthanasia, embryonic stem cell research and human cloning, as well as the freedom of religion. Too often these issues have been dealt with poorly by governments, as individual rights, scientific argument, rational thinking and ethical action has been neglected or obscured in public debate.
The following articles and more detailed submissions attempt to redress this imbalance.
The Ethics link includes papers on ethical issues other than euthanasia. Other links contain papers on Euthanasia or Science related issues.
