    Challenging the Rhetoric of Choice in Prenatal Screening.Victoria Seavilleklein - 2009 - Bioethics 23 (1):68-77.
    Prenatal screening, consisting of maternal serum screening and nuchal translucency screening, is on the verge of expansion, both by being offered to more pregnant women and by screening for more conditions. The Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists have each recently recommended that screening be extended to all pregnant women regardless of age, disease history, or risk status.

    Jennifer Bell applies Susan Sherwin's theory of relational autonomy as a lens to qualitative health research to study patient decision-making in cancer clinical trials. Interestingly, her broader goal is to enhance patient decision-making in the healthcare context1 rather than the research one. This goal relies on a silent assumption that knowledge gained in a research context is easily transferable to the healthcare context. It also leaves unexplored the promise—and peril—of the application of her work in a research context.Bell's goal to (...)
