Example text

Take another such petition sent in 2007 to the website (www. org) of Ayatollah Fadlallah, eminently ‘contemporary’ as we have already noted. The correspondent talks of looking for a ‘legal loophole’ or ‘way out’ (manfadh shar‘i) of his dilemma. After divorcing an earlier wife, he suffered from the atrophy of one of his testicles and became totally infertile. He travelled abroad and married another woman, telling his new wife that he could no longer have children, which she accepted. But then they came to Lebanon and she found the social stigma of not being able to have children unbearable.

The Political Dimension The comparative ‘openness’ and ‘contemporaneity’, in bioethical matters at least, of Shia legal debate was an important theme that emerged from my research. What I want to stress again here is its political currency: such open and contemporary opinions are material to contests over the image and influence of religious authorities, who are often highly politicised figures in this Shia Lebanese context. And while Khamene’i’s permission of donor procedures is an important ruling for infertile Shia seeking paths to fertility in what is a highly pro-natal society, this is, it has to be admitted, a relatively marginal domain.

Where X stands for a controversial medical procedure, such as abortion, and Y for a religious or cultural tradition, such as Islam, which, it is felt, needs to be taken into consideration, more or less seriously, for the proper formulation of policy, governmental or clinical. This is of course a very crude, and inadequate, characterisation of what bioethics now is and can be, as an academic and practical discipline. Nevertheless, this sort of legalistic frame is, I think it is fair to say, the dominant form demanded of a putative ‘Islamic bioethics’, at least in my own experience, both in academic circles in Britain and elsewhere and within clinical settings in Lebanon.
