    Moral Tales of Parental Living Kidney Donation: A Parenthood Moral Imperative and its Relevance for Decision Making. [REVIEW]Kristin Zeiler, Lisa Guntram & Anette Lennerling - 2010 - Medicine, Health Care and Philosophy 13 (3):225-236.
    Free and informed choice is an oft-acknowledged ethical basis for living kidney donation, including parental living kidney donation. The extent to which choice is present in parental living kidney donation has, however, been questioned. Since parents can be expected to have strong emotional bonds to their children, it has been asked whether these bonds make parents unable to say no to this donation. This article combines a narrative analysis of parents’ stories of living kidney donation with a philosophical discussion of (...)

    The Ethics of the Societal Entrenchment-Approach and the Case of Live Uterus Transplantation-IVF.Lisa Guntram & Kristin Zeiler - 2019 - Medicine, Health Care and Philosophy 22 (4):557-571.
    In 2014, the first child in the world was born after live uterus transplantation and IVF. Before and after this event, ethical aspects of UTx-IVF have been discussed in the medical and bioethical debate as well as, with varying intensity, in Swedish media and political fora. This article examines what comes to be identified as important ethical problems and solutions in the media debate of UTx-IVF in Sweden, showing specifically how problems, target groups, goals, benefits, risks and stakes are delineated (...)

  4. Creating, Maintaining and Questioning (Hetero)Relational Normality in Narratives About Vaginal Reconstruction.Lisa Guntram - 2013 - Feminist Theory 14 (1):105-121.
    Analysing ten interviews with women diagnosed with and treated for congenital absence of the vagina, this article theorises the notion of ideal relational normality. It explores how women in my case study negotiate, relate to and challenge this notion and examines the normative and bodily work for which it calls. The article specifically underscores the corporeal dimension of relational normality. I argue that this notion of normality shapes the bodies of the women through medical interventions, while concurrently being reinforced through (...)

    May I Have Your Uterus? The Contribution of Considering Complexities Preceding Live Uterus Transplantation.Lisa Guntram - forthcoming - Medical Humanities:medhum-2020-011864.
    Uterus transplantation combined with in vitro fertilisation as a treatment for infertility caused by an absence or malfunction of the uterus is advancing. About 50 transplantations have been conducted worldwide and at least 14 children have been born—9 of them by women taking part in a Swedish research project on UTx-IVF. The Swedish research protocol initially stated that the potential recipient must ‘have her own donor’ who is preferably related to the recipient. But what does it mean to ask someone (...)
