“Although some people may clamor to have their spine severed, to have a healthy limb removed, or to have sex change operations, the recognition of the seriousness of the underlying psychiatric issues should only strengthen our resolve to protect the human dignity and authentic personal identity of these patients by declining their requests for any form of medical mutilation.”  Short opinion piece here, part of the Making Sense of Bioethics series available online from the National Catholic Bioethics Center (image: flag).
