    The Psychological Well‐being of Pregnant Women Undergoing Prenatal Testing and Screening: A Narrative Literature Review.Barbara B. Biesecker - 2019 - Hastings Center Report 49 (S1):53-60.
    Prenatal screening and testing are preference‐based health care options. They are offered so that pregnant women and their partners can learn genetic information about the developing fetus. In this literature review, I summarize studies of women’s and their partners’ psychological responses to prenatal testing and screening. These studies investigate the experiences of pregnant women, largely in the United States, who have access to health care services. Although the results indicate that these women are receptive to prenatal testing and screening and (...)

    Guest Editor's Introduction: Toward an Archaeogenealogy of Post-truth.Barbara A. Biesecker - 2018 - Philosophy and Rhetoric 51 (4):329-341.
    The theme of this special issue is Post-truth. No doubt it was my exasperation with the terminological state of our collective situation that incited me in the spring of 2017 to settle upon it. What, exactly, does the hyphenated couplet mean or to what does it refer? What is its significance or sense? How is it being used, by whom, for what purpose, and with what consequences—for whom? And if, as was being asserted on nearly every side, we currently find (...)

    Future directions in genetic counseling: Practical and ethical considerations.Barbara Biesecker - 1998 - Kennedy Institute of Ethics Journal 8 (2):145-160.
    : The accelerated discovery of gene mutations that lead to increased risk of disease has led to the rapid development of predictive genetic tests. These tests improve the accuracy of assigning risk, but at a time when intervention or prevention strategies are largely unproved. In coming years, however, data will become increasingly available to guide treatment of genetic diseases. Eventually genetic testing will be performed for common diseases as well as for rare genetic conditions. This will challenge genetic counseling practice. (...)

    From General History to Philosophy: Black Lives Matter, Late Neoliberal Molecular Biopolitics, and Rhetoric.Barbara A. Biesecker - 2017 - Philosophy and Rhetoric 50 (4):409-430.
    On the fiftieth anniversary of Philosophy and Rhetoric I hope a future for the journal that not only continues to publish scholarship that reflects seriously on the productive possibilities of putting the unique understandings of the human condition delivered by philosophy into contact with the singular insights into the power and perils of speech, writing, and gesture offered up by rhetoric. I also wish for it printed pages on which scholars engage thoughtfully the challenges posed by worlds and loss of (...)

    Cancer Patient Experience of Uncertainty While Waiting for Genome Sequencing Results.Nicci Bartley, Christine E. Napier, Zoe Butt, Timothy E. Schlub, Megan C. Best, Barbara B. Biesecker, Mandy L. Ballinger & Phyllis Butow - 2021 - Frontiers in Psychology 12.
    There is limited knowledge about cancer patients' experiences of uncertainty while waiting for genome sequencing results, and whether prolonged uncertainty contributes to psychological factors in this context. To investigate uncertainty in patients with a cancer of likely hereditary origin while waiting for genome sequencing results, we collected questionnaire and interview data at baseline, and at three and 12 months follow up. Participants had negative attitudes towards uncertainty at baseline, and low levels of uncertainty at three and 12 months. Uncertainty about (...)

    Unintended Messages: The Ethics of Teaching Genetic Dilemmas.Holly C. Gooding, Benjamin Wilfond, Karina Boehm & Barbara Bowles Biesecker - 2002 - Hastings Center Report 32 (2):37-39.
    Bioethicists teaching and writing about the uses of prenatal genetic testing sometimes use “difficult cases” in which people with a disability want to test and select for the presence of their disability. Such cases challenge our stereotypes but also play into them.
