Reproductive Justice and the Ethics of Access 

Justice is the fourth principle in the dominant mode of medical ethics analysis (principlism) yet in practice it is often treated as an afterthought, and in the 1970s the feminists who developed the “reproductive freedom” framework for contraception and abortion rights were similarly focused on individual autonomy. However, in the 1990s women of color offered an alternate conceptual framework: “reproductive justice” (RJ). Professor Watson will analyze how beginning with justice and centering marginalized populations changes the analysis of reproductive rights and ethics, explore the link between RJ and issues like unjust policing in communities of color, and consider what the entire field of bioethics could learn from the RJ movement.

Flash(y) Bioethics:
Five Disciplinary Takes on One Audience-Suggested Topic: “IGNORANCE”

Come join us for a fun introduction to our faculty and our field! Five members of the Medical Humanities & Bioethics graduate faculty have agreed to do a five-minute talk based on a suggestion previously solicited from our audience. Out of the submitted suggestions, the topic selected was “IGNORANCE.” Each of the faculty will approach the term from the perspective of their academic discipline, consider how it relates to medicine, and likely follow it to diverging and unexpected places.

From Autistic Savant to Autistic Savant:
The Narrow Depiction of Autism in Popular Culture

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a complex phenomenon that can be characterized in a number of ways—as a disorder, a disability, as part of neurodiversity, or as an identity. Representations of ASD in popular culture have now been with us for many decades.  From Rain Main to The Good Doctor, however, these representations have stayed on a very narrow path—typically a white, male, non-autistic actor portraying someone with savantism.  We plan to define autism, explain autistic savantism, and explore some salient representations of ASD in film and television over the past few decades.  We will discuss why this limited representation is ethically problematic and offer some recommendations.

Collaboration from Crisis—Bioethics in Chicago During COVID-19

During the COVID-19 pandemic a myriad of ethical challenges have come to the fore. Just a few examples include questions about how to distribute scarce resources such as ventilators or new therapies such as Remdesivir. Healthcare in Chicago is notable for having many different hospitals and healthcare systems. Bioethics in Chicago is notable for the depth and breadth of experts active in considering new and challenging bioethical issues. This talk will describe how a group of bioethicists from different settings and healthcare systems in Chicago came together to think about and work through the bioethical challenges presented by COVID-19, what challenges the group faced, and plans for the group going forward.
