    The Artificial Womb: A Pilot Study Considering People's Views on the Artificial Womb and Ectogenesis in Israel.Frida Simonstein & Michal Mashiach–Eizenberg - 2009 - Cambridge Quarterly of Healthcare Ethics 18 (1):87.
    edited by Tuija Takala and Matti Häyry, welcomes contributions on the conceptual and theoretical dimensions of bioethics. The section is dedicated to the idea that words defined by bioethicists and others should not be allowed to imprison people's actual concerns, emotions, and thoughts. Papers that expose the many meanings of a concept, describe the different readings of a moral doctrine, or provide an alternative angle to seemingly self-evident issues are therefore particularly appreciated. The themes covered in the section so far (...)

    Priorities in the Israeli Health Care System.Frida Simonstein - 2013 - Medicine, Health Care and Philosophy 16 (3):341-347.
    The Israeli health care system is looked upon by some people as one of the most advanced health care systems in the world in terms of access, quality, costs and coverage. The Israel health care system has four key components: (1) universal coverage; (2) ‘cradle to grave’ coverage; (3) coverage of both basic services and catastrophic care; and (4) coverage of medications. Patients pay a (relatively) small copayment to see specialists and to purchase medication; and, primary care is free. However, (...)

    Artificial Reproduction Technologies (RTs) – All the Way to the Artificial Womb?Frida Simonstein - 2006 - Medicine, Health Care and Philosophy 9 (3):359-365.
    In this paper, I argue that the development of an artificial womb is already well on its way. By putting together pieces of information arising from new scientific advances in different areas, (neo-natal care, gynecology, embryology, the human genome project and computer science), I delineate a distinctive picture, which clearly suggests that the artificial womb may become a reality sooner than we may think. Currently, there is a huge gap between the first stages of gestation (using in vitro fertilization) and (...)

    Gene Editing, Enhancing and Women’s Role.Frida Simonstein - 2019 - Science and Engineering Ethics 25 (4):1007-1016.
    A recent article on the front page of The Independent reported that the genetic ‘manipulation’ of IVF embryos is to start in Britain, using a new revolutionary gene-editing technique, called Crispr/Cas9. About three weeks later, on the front page of the same newspaper, it was reported that the National Health Service faces a one billion pound deficit only 3 months into the new year. The hidden connection between these reports is that gene editing could be used to solve issues related (...)

    Reprogenetics, Reproductive Risks and Cultural Awareness: What May We Learn From Israeli and Croatian Medical Students?Miriam Ethel Bentwich, Michal Mashiach-Eizenberg, Ana Borovečki & Frida Simonstein - 2019 - BMC Medical Ethics 20 (1):1-11.
    Background Past studies emphasized the possible cultural influence on attitudes regarding reprogenetics and reproductive risks among medical students who are taken to be “future physicians.” These studies were crafted in order to enhance the knowledge and expand the boundaries of cultural competence. Yet such studies were focused on MS from relatively marginalized cultures, namely either from non-Western developing countries or minority groups in developed countries. The current study sheds light on possible cultural influences of the dominant culture on medical students (...)

    Assisted Reproduction: A Comparative Review of IVF Policies in Two Pro-Natalist Countries. [REVIEW]Ekaterina Balabanova & Frida Simonstein - 2010 - Health Care Analysis 18 (2):188-202.
    Policies on reproduction have become an increasingly important tool for governments seeking to meet the so-called demographic ‘challenge’ created by the combination of low fertility and lengthening life expectancies. However, the tension between the state and the market in health care is present in all countries around the world due to the scare resources available and the understandable importance of the health issues. The field of assisted reproduction, as part of the health care system, is affected by this tension with (...)
