Ashley X Revisited

The January 2010 issue of AJOB – the American Journal of Bioethics – has a paper by Diekema and Fost defending their use of growth attenuation therapy in the case of Ashley X. Those of you in my classes can find the article under Lessons/Course Resources/PDF Files. The relevant ethical questions are obvious, perhaps, but it might not be too easy to build a case against the use of this therapy.
