What Is Bioethics?
- MeSH (Medical Subject Headings, in PubMed) -- "A branch of applied ethics that studies the value implications of practices and developments in life sciences, medicine, and health care."
- Routledge Encyclopedia of Philosophy -- "While bioethics, a part of applied ethics, is usually identified with medical ethics, in its broadest sense it is the study of the moral, social and political problems that arise out of biology and the life sciences generally and involve, either directly or indirectly, human wellbeing. Thus, environmental and animal ethics are sometimes included within it."
