Abstract
ABSTRACT
The article presents abstracts of papers published in the September 1, 2004 issue of the journal "Issues in Law & Medicine." The paper "Utilitarian Pessimism, Human Dignity, and the Vegetative State: A Practical Analysis of the Papal Allocution," provides a practical analysis of the speech of John Paul II to the participants in the International Congress on "Life Sustaining Treatments and Vegetative State: Scientific Advances and Ethical Dilemmas." The paper "Pope John Paul II on Nutrition and Hydration: A Change of Catholic Teaching?" argues that the pope's allocution does nothing of the sort, and that what the Holy Father has to say about the use of tube-feeding is a recapitulation of the Catholic moral tradition.
