‘American Bioethics’ explores a human rights and health law boundary-crossing endeavor in international contexts, including terrorism and genetic engineering, and U.S. domestic disputes such as patient rights and assisted reproduction. The decoding of the human genome – which shows that all humans are virtually genetically identical – presents bioethics with an opportunity to reinvigorate another code, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which is based on the moral and legal equality of all humans. The challenge for American bioethicists is to work with international human rights advocates as partners to join these two codes, and the disciplines of bioethics and human rights, in imaginative ways to make the world a more just and healthier place for all of us to live.
