Abstract


Bioethical problems of the physician- patient relations in regard to the issues of reproductive situations are discussed. They are most pressing in case of abortion and Cesarean section with no medical indications. This problem is particularly urgent in the present situation when the State Duma is debating a draft law on banning abortion.

But another urgent problem has emerged– the practice of performing a caesarean section without medical indications, while the genesis of the women’s attitude to both events is similar nature. This article argued that successful prevention of such events depends on the physician’s philosophy and may be achieved by using the convictions based on the Russian philosophy traditions.

Key words: physician, patient, reproductology,  abortion,  worldview of the doctor, philosophy  tradition
