People with disabilities and bioethics
The Order of Saint John of God is one of the entities collaborating with the Ibero-American Journal of Bioethics. Issue 15, published on 22-02-2021, is dedicated to Intellectual Disability. This issue has been coordinated by the Order and contains several articles whose authors are people from our own Centres. You can access the journal directly using the "Bioethics Journal" tab on this website. Intellectual Disability was chosen as one particular area in which the Order has a long history, both on account of its direct care of these people and in the debate on the ethical dilemmas arising. We trust that it will prove of interest to you, and the General Bioethics Commission invites you to visit this publication.
We would also like you to note that in the Bioethics section of this website, you can access a manifesto entitled "Yes to dying with dignity, with the best care and without pain" prepared by the Bioethics Group of UNIJES (Jesuit Universities of Spain), which we consider to be of oustanding and interest. Thank you for your attention.
