When doctors ask these questions, patients often lie because they're
embarrassed, don't want to disappoint their physician, and fear being judged. Or
they might rationalize their lie, promising themselves to fix the problem in the
interim. so that the next time they're queried, they won't be lying. As doctors. we

Doctors found that she was faking her symptoms by heating up the thermometer
and injecting water into her own breast. They sent her back to Eileen's and she
gave Jonathan a glass of juice. Shortly afterwards his vision faded, he went grey
and clammy and lost consciousness, but Jonathan revived quickly and doctors
believed that he'd fainted due to the hot sun. Bev also continued to selfharm,
breaking her catheter on two occasions so that part of it remained inside her
bladder and ...

I have excluded Dr. Knox from my personal gallery of medics who have killed
because, in the strictest sense of the word and indeed in the eyes of the law, he
was not a murderer. I have also attempted not to fall into the trap of dwelling on
English doctors who have hastened the demise of patients, relatives and mere
acquaintances, although I must admit the temptation to concentrate on our
English brethren was most inviting. There seem to be so many English medics
who have diluted ...

Wand'n'ng in the dark, Physicians, for the tree, have found the bark ; They, lab'
ring for relief of human kind, With sharpen'd sight some remedies may find; The
apothecary train is wholly blind : From files a random recipe they take, And many
deaths of one prescription make. Dryden. To 'pothecaries let the learn'd prescribe
. That men may die without a double bribe ; Let them, but under their superiors,
kill, When doctors first have sign'd the bloody bill. Dryden. What crowds of
patients the ...

In this case we would be disinclined to say that the doctors are in any sense the
cause of their patients' deaths. But let us further suppose that the two dying
patients, Y and Z, are not happy about being left to die. They might argue that it is
not strictly true that there are no organs which could be used to save them. Y
needs a new heart and Z new lungs. They point out that if just one healthy person
were to be killed his organs could be removed and both of them be saved. We

(a) In all cases of the first type, doctors act against their patients' wishes to live.
Dworkin et al. agree that doctors may permissibly deny a lifesaving organ to a
patient who wants it in order to give it to another, but not kill a nonconsenting
patient in order to get that patient's organ for another. They say that this is not
because of a moral difference between letting patients die and killing them, but
because the doctors merely foresee death in the first case but intend it in the
second. Intending ...

The court, to its credit, was explicit that at issue was an operation that involved
the direct, intentional killing of an innocent child and this raised the question how
to assess the “murderous intent” of the surgeons (*773 & 791). In a ninety-page
judgment, the Lord Justices found ways to justify the killing so that the doctors
could not be prosecuted for homicide when they separated the twins. The
commentary on the case by moral theologians and philosophers has divided on
the issue, with ...

Chapter 1 Beyond Pink and Blue If doctors really want to do something for their
intersexed patients, I would say the first thing is [to] put the intersex person in
touch with other people who are intersexed. Number two is see number one. And
number three is see number one. That's it. Doctors think that you're going to kill
yourself if you find out the truth. People kill themselves because they feel alone
and isolated and helpless; that's why they kill themselves . When doctors don't tell
