BIOETHICS IN CRISIS OR THE CRISIS OF BIOETHICS? AN ANTHROPOLOGY OF THE PANDEMIC IN THE MEDICALIZED SOCIETY
Editia in limba engleza
Many people believe that ethics and bioethics and the call for respecting some principles are bureaucratic obstacles to obtaining a rapid response from the population – for example, to achieve vaccines in record time, to immunize the population, to establish unpopular but necessary measures, such as closure of borders and non-compliance with fundamental principles of the European Union, establishment of public policies aimed at herd immunity or, conversely, closure of most activities considered not essential in the economy, to ensure social distancing and self-isolation of the population. These measures are understood as derogations from ethics or bioethics when targeting medical research on human subjects performed faster than required by the standard procedure, or the implementation of innovative therapeutic practices that have not previously been studied by clinical trials to certify that there are no known side effects.
From ethical point of view, we should take into account that this period will be overcome at some point, but a number of changes in respect for civil liberties could extend into the post-pandemic period and there may be attempts in some states to impose authoritarian regimes, especially where there is no democratic tradition, and this could be a risk for post-pandemic society. In this context, care for individuals must be correlated with respect for ethical rules, norms and standards, even if they may suffer some derogations during pandemic.
