    Abstract

    Much of bioethics is founded on the principles of autonomy, beneficence, non-maleficence, and justice. But when bioethics and military ethics combine, many of these principles seem to be compromised. In large part, this is due to the military setting, with its unique requirements, in particular the obligation to obey all legal orders.
