New Life to the Debate about Death


  • Gregory E. Kaebnick


This issue of the Report is far ranging, with essays on the nature of the U.S. government's responsibility toward Indian tribes, a medical school's commitment toward applicants who are immigrants, the difficulty of developing a transparent national registry of clinical trials, and the ethical problems embedded in the topic of global health. Two items in the issue revolve around physicians’ role in upholding the value placed on reproduction. Another small set of pieces within this issue of the Report examines the intractability of the debate over how to define death.
