Debating Conscientious Objection in Healthcare
Conscience Debate


Chair: Claire Fox (Director, Academy of Ideas)

Speakers: Alberto Giubilini (Senior Research Fellow, Oxford Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics); David Albert Jones (Director, Anscombe Bioethics Centre)

Should conscientious objection be permitted in healthcare? Chaired by Claire Fox, this debate between Alberto Giubilini and David Albert Jones will see Alberto and David adopting the other's position on conscientious objection, arguing for the opposing view in an attempt to explore not only the subject, but the very nature of disagreement and discussion. Audience members will be encouraged to explore their views on conscientious objection in the same way.

This event was co-sponsored by the Oxford Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics, University of Oxford, and took place via Zoom.
