An emerging issue in medical ethics is how to respond to the growing religious and ethnic diversity seen in American hospitals. This fictionalized account of a clinical case uses narrative ethics to explore decisions at the end of life in a pluralistic society. The author maintains that it is the rights secured for patients and their families by secular bioethics and its inherent respect for pluralism that allow for cultural and religious differences.
