Ethics of medical research and investigation in Jewish sources.
Written in English
Background. Bioethical questions raised by modern medicine present us with difficult and, in some cases, entirely new problems. Changes in traditional concepts are processed much more slowly than technological developments. Classical Jewish literature houses a long-standing tradition regarding the principles of bioethical behavior. The aim of my study is to present the approach of the Jewish sources to bioethical questions in a systematic manner.Results. The analysis of the classical Jewish sources demonstrates their relevance to modern bioethical questions. The positions adopted by Halakha with regard to current issues including autopsy, animal experimentation and self-endangerment, drawn from the earliest Jewish sources, demonstrate the continuous tradition that characterizes Jewish thought. Judaism stands out in its stable and unwavering basic positions, despite the tremendous upheavals that have occurred in the ethics of medical research.Discussion. The qualitative contribution of this work is the systematic presentation of the classical Jewish sources regarding issues of modern bioethics. Our quotation, analysis and discussion of the relevant Jewish sources demonstrate the fascinating historical relationship between developments in medicine and the continuity of halakhic literature. Confronting modern questions with the classical values of Jewish tradition, while carefully considering the particular circumstances of each individual case, may produce balanced solutions for contemporary bioethical issues. I believe that the unique nature of the Jewish approach in bioethics can make a significant contribution to modern bioethics, and I have pointed out areas requiring further elaboration.Methods. I have analyzed three areas related to modern medical research and investigation. After defining the bioethical problem in its clinical and historical context, I quote and analyze the relevant biblical or talmudic texts and discuss them with reference to the later authorities of the responsa literature. For each subject a historical survey of the halakhic literature is provided.
