A discussion of the article, “Bioethics, Public Health, and Firearm-Related Violence: Missing Links Between Bioethics and Public Health”.
This is an analysis of the concepts, treatment, and findings of a paper, entitled “Bioethics, Public Health, and Firearm-Related Violence: Missing Links Between Bioethics and Public Health”. The writer looks at the arguments, their rationality, and impact on current American society. The author powerfully criticizes the negligence of the practitioners of bioethics in addressing the more important issues of concern to their science.
“It is agreed that practitioners have neglected the more serious issues concerning public health and should be more interested in them than the more superficial and less serious issues. Public health, social medicine and community health sciences deserve a lot of these practitioners’ time and attention in the form of honest-to-goodness investigative work and purposeful resolution of problems, especially firearm-related violence in these fields. Besides physicians who are the first to confront victims of combat wounds and gun-related injuries or deaths, it is the bioethics practitioner who must exhibit the strongest concern over the prevalence of such violence in the US.”
