This chapter begins with a discussion of the roots of ethical thinking about medical decision-making. It then considers bioethical disputes and the value of law of bioethicists. It argues that when looking at the relationship between law and bioethics, it must not be forgotten that the law purports to pronounce on legalities, and not therefore necessarily on what is morally right.

Keywords:   medical ethics, bioethics, medical decision-making
