Webcast: The Ethical Puzzle of Maternal Mortality

Replay the video from the June 19 webcast “The Thief of the Future: The Ethical Puzzle of Maternal Mortality,” a presentation by bioethicist Laurie Zoloth, Ph.D., live from the University of Texas Health, San Antonio.

Texas' maternal mortality rate is the highest in the U.S., with new mothers dying at a pace equivalent to that of economically underdeveloped countries, according to recent studies (learn more here and here). 

Zoloth, Dean of the University of Chicago Divinity School, will explore the ethical issues of this trend and discuss the validity of different approaches to address the problem and the values that undergird possible solutions.

This presentation is part of Conversations About Ethics, a series of free, public lectures and discussions about ethics issues presented by the Center for Medical Humanities & Ethics and the Ecumenical Center for Religion and Health.
