Cultural Bioethics in Latin America

  • Agata Strządała

Abstract

The text describes bioethics in Latin America, focuses on its origins, essential issues and historical development in different countries. At first bioethics in Latin America was based on the  Western and especially American patterns. However, because of completely different social, political, cultural and historical context, it was impossible to transfer directly the American  resolution to Latin America. As a consequence, a new, specific and culturally adequate bioethics emerged.
