Bioethics Effectiveness of Goldman’s The Refutation of Medical Paternalism In his essay, The Refutation of Medical Paternalism, Alan Goldman states his argument against a strong doctor-patient role differentiation, in which the doctor may act against a patients’ immediate will in order to carry treatment in the patients’ best interest. Goldman frames his entire argument around the single assumption that a person’s freedom to decide his future is the most important and fundamental right as he claims “the autonomous individual is the source of those other goods he enjoys, and so is not to be sacrificed for the sake of them.” He claims that the majority of people would agree that they are the best judges of their own self-interest

Bioethics is multidisciplinary. It blends law, philosophy, insights from the humanities and medicine to bear on the the complex interaction of human life, science, and technology. Although its
Ethics throughout science are very controversial as they are the model of distinguishing between right and wrong throughout all aspects of research. Throughout Honeybee Democracy and The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks we are given an insider’s perspective into the ethics, or the lack there of, regarding the ongoing research and the researchers conducting it. Although the books cover very different subject matter, there are divisions of their research and within their individual ethics that are almost indistinguishable.
This essay will argue that the decision reached in Cattanach v Melchior  was the correct one. Supporting this argument is the courts departure from the principles established in McFarlane v Tayside Health Board .Additionally, Cattanach extends itself by attempting to address and give legal clarity to the idea of compensable harm in relation to negligence of medical practitioners. This has ultimately led to Cattanach establishing a positive framework, previously not recognised by the courts, to award damages for the torts of wrongful birth and wrongful life. Finally, the reaction to Cattanach on the judicial and executive branches of government have had significant impact on shaping public policy in relation to these complex issues.
Evans describes as “commensuration” (Evans, 51). Evans defines commensuration as “a method of ‘measuring different properties… [using] a single, common standard or unit’” (Evans, 51). Forcing a number to moral values makes it more straightforward for bioethicists to quantify each ethical decision on a scale. The commensuration of principles is necessary to the field of bioethics because it makes moral values and judgment “calculable and predictable” (Evans, 50-51). In other words, medical practitioners are able to efficiently decide treatment based on the established codes of conduct in which the moral metrics behind the decisions are predetermined by bioethicists. Thus, treatments become standardized and patients can expect the same care from any doctor. The institutionalization of moral dilemmas makes practicing medicine more efficient for both the practitioners and
