Eugene F. Diamond, MD The Right to Pain Control
abstract | view |  rights & permissions | cited by
Since the passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act in 2010, public concern persists about health care rationing and the use of quality-of-life criteria in end-of-life counseling by public providers of health care funding. Advisors to the Obama administration have shown an overriding concern for the cost rather than the quality of highly technical interventions in cases of life-threatening illness. In addition, subtle encouragement of physicianassisted suicide has been detected in hospice and long-term-care facilities. Modern advances have made pain control an achievable right. Recognizing the right of patients who are terminally ill to obtain effective pain control is an important factor in the opposition to health care rationing and euthanasia.

Nancy M. Rourke, Paula Leslie Sacramental Swallow: How Swallowing Informs Eucharistic Theology
abstract | view |  rights & permissions | cited by
This paper contributes to our understanding of participation in the Eucharist by examining the swallow. The paper begins with a thick description of the swallow as act, as phenomenon, and as symbol. This description reveals the swallow’s interstitial nature, which is then examined for its implications on the meaning of participation in the sacrament. The paper then recommends approaches to the Eucharist for Catholics for whom swallowing is difficult or impossible. The paper finally incorporates these findings with the ex opere operato doctrine, demonstrating participation as efficacious interaction.

John A. Gallagher Discerning the Future of the American Catholic Health Care Ministry
abstract | view |  rights & permissions | cited by
American health care is in the process of a significant social, institutional, and economic restructuring of the manner in which health services are provided in local communities. The Catholic health care ministry is undergoing the same sort of restructuring. The history of American health care demonstrates that the ministry has experienced at least two similar major restructurings of its institutional framework. The principle of cooperation has been the customary tool to assess the moral propriety of evolving social structures in which the health care ministry has been housed. A process of discernment can lead to the conclusion that the central issue is not moral agency but rather how the ministry engages the secular culture of American society and American medicine. National Catholic Bioethics Quarterly 13.2 (Summer 2013): 263–274.

Rev. Paschal M. Corby, OFM Conv. Estranged Fathers: The Alienation of Men in Heterologous Embryo Transfer
abstract | view |  rights & permissions | cited by
In the debate about heterologous embryo transfer (HET), or embryo adoption, within marriage, discussion to date has proceeded predominantly from the perspective of the acting woman, with less attention paid to the effects on her spouse. In directing the focus of this paper to the man’s experience, the author is confirmed in his opinion that HET is contrary to the man’s dignity as husband and father. It is an infidelity to the exclusive union of his marriage, an affront to the husband’s right to be the means by whom his wife becomes a mother, and a sacrilege to the sacrament by which his fatherhood is called to be an expression of God’s creative love.

Stanislaus J. Dundon Prudent Policy Formation for Minimizing Clerical Child Sexual Abuse
abstract | view |  rights & permissions | cited by
This article provides Catholic authorities with a useful framework for forming prudent and just policies to minimize clerical child sexual abuse, exploiting the 2011 John Jay College report Causes and Context while not ignoring its shortcomings. The framework is St. Thomas Aquinas’s treatment of prudence, and a “profile” of the clerical perpetrators is developed that uses their narcissism as a middle term to explain why these men behaved the way they did. The author concludes by recommending a deterrent policy similar to the policy advocated by St. Paul, which does not unrealistically aim at an angelic clergy but aims to deter those who would enter the priesthood for its benefits. National Catholic Bioethics Quarterly 13.2 (Summer 2013): 299–311.
