Description Bioethics represents not only an intersection of ethics and lite science, an academic discipline, a political force in medicine and biology, but most importantly a perspective of a consensus in certain questions of ethics. For bioethics that represents a transformation of the older and more traditional domain of medical ethics, a need to define its fundamentals has arisen. The key-stone for bioethics that meets the condition of general recognition, are human rights, as defined by international law. The framework documents in this respect are the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the Universal Declaration on Human Rights and Bioethics.
