Disability: A Voice in Australian Bioethics?


Newell, CJ, Disability: A Voice in Australian Bioethics?, New Zealand Bioethics Journal, 4, (2) pp. 15-20. ISSN 1175-3455 (2003) [Refereed Article]


The rise of research and advocacy over the years to establish a disability voice in Australia with regard to bioethical issues is explored. This includes an analysis of some of the political processes and engagement in mainstream bioethical debate. An understanding of the politics of rejected knowledge is vital in understanding the muted disability voices in Australian bioethics and public policy. It is also suggested that the voices of those who are marginalised or oppressed in society, such as people with disability, have particular contribution to make in fostering critical bioethics.
