    Phenomenology, Saudi Arabia, and an argument for the standardization of clinical ethics consultation.Abram Brummett & Ruaim Muaygil - 2021 - Philosophy, Ethics and Humanities in Medicine 16 (1):1-9.
    BackgroundThe purpose of this study is to make a philosophical argument against the phenomenological critique of standardization in clinical ethics. We used the context of clinical ethics in Saudi Arabia to demonstrate the importance of credentialing clinical ethicists.MethodsPhilosophical methods of argumentation and conceptual analysis were used.ResultsWe found the phenomenological critique of standardization to be flawed because it relies on a series of false dichotomies.ConclusionsWe concluded that the phenomenological framing of the credentialing debate relies upon two extreme views to be navigated (...)

    From Paternalistic to Patronizing: How Cultural Competence Can Be Ethically Problematic.Ruaim A. Muaygil - 2018 - HEC Forum 30 (1):13-29.
    Cultural competence literature and training aim to equip healthcare workers to better understand patients of different cultures and value systems, in an effort to ensure effective and equitable healthcare services for diverse patient populations. However, without nuanced awareness and contextual knowledge, the values embedded within cultural competence practice may cripple rather than empower the very people they mean to respect. A narrow cultural view can lessen cultural understanding rather than grow it. In its first part, this paper argues that a (...)

    Reexamining the Prohibition of Gestational Surrogacy in Sunni Islam.Ruaim A. Muaygil - 2016 - Developing World Bioethics 17 (2):112-120.
    Advances in reproductive medicine have provided new, and much needed, hope for millions of people struggling with infertility. Gestational surrogacy is one such development that has been gaining popularity with infertile couples, especially those unable to benefit from other reproductive procedures such as In Vitro Fertilization. For many Muslim couples, however, surrogacy remains a nonviable option. Islamic scholars have deemed the procedure incompatible with Islam and have prohibited its use. This paper examines the arguments presented for proscribing surrogacy arrangements in (...)

    Beyond Sacredness: Why Saudi Arabian Bioethics Must Be Feminist.Ruaim A. Muaygil - 2018 - International Journal of Feminist Approaches to Bioethics 11 (1):125-143.
    Amal is a 27-year-old woman who has recently been diagnosed with a rare and aggressive type of thyroid cancer.1 She is also 12 weeks into her third pregnancy. Since her diagnosis, Amal and her husband have met with her oncologist multiple times to discuss several treatment options. Amal's oncologist recommends surgical resection of the tumor and radioactive iodine therapy, but that would require termination of the pregnancy, as iodine is contraindicated for pregnant women. Alternatively, Amal may elect to postpone treatment (...)

    Ethical uncertainty and COVID-19: exploring the lived experiences of senior physicians at a major medical centre.Ruaim Muaygil, Raniah Aldekhyyel, Lemmese AlWatban, Lyan Almana, Rana F. Almana & Mazin Barry - 2023 - Journal of Medical Ethics 49 (4):275-282.
    Given the wide-reaching and detrimental impact of COVID-19, its strain on healthcare resources, and the urgent need for—sometimes forced—public health interventions, thorough examination of the ethical issues brought to light by the pandemic is especially warranted. This paper aims to identify some of the complex moral dilemmas faced by senior physicians at a major medical centre in Saudi Arabia, in an effort to gain a better understanding of how they navigated ethical uncertainty during a time of crisis. This qualitative study (...)

    Motherhood, Fairness, and Flourishing: Widening Reproductive Choices in Saudi Arabia.Ruaim Muaygil - 2023 - Cambridge Quarterly of Healthcare Ethics 32 (2):276-288.
    In a landmark Fatwa, Saudi Arabia’s highest religious authority—The Council of Senior Scholars—declared the Islamic permissibility of oocyte cryopreservation. The fatwa sanctioned the retrieval, preservation, and future use of oocytes, ovarian tissue, and whole ovaries from cancer patients receiving gonadotoxic interventions. Although momentous, the fatwa’s specification of cancer patients effectively rendered this technology unavailable to others to whom it may be similarly beneficial, including patients with other medical conditions or patients seeking elective cryopreservation. This article argues in favor of widening (...)
