Daniel Callahan, a Pioneer in Bioethics, Dies at 88

July 22, 2019

(America Magazine) – Kevin Clarke, America’s senior editor, e-mailed me yesterday afternoon with the news that a very special friend had died. Dan Callahan was world-renowned as a pioneer in the field of bioethics. Even before the term had been coined, he was an independent scholar turning over new ground at the frontier where ethics meets medicine, law and religion.
