It is impossible to understand the meaning of medical bioethics in isolation from this context. Bioethics is a necessary consequence of the principles that have been moulding the spiritual life of the Western countries for two centuries. If since the Enlightenment there has been affirmation of the autonomous and absolute nature of human individuals, in both the religious order (through the principle of religious freedom) and the political order (through the principle of democracy), it is logical that this should have led to what we might call the 'principle of moral freedom,' which can be formulated as follows: All human beings are autonomous moral agents, and as such should be respected by all those who hold distinct moral positions.

1092-3). 36 DIEGO GRACIA 5. THE POLITICAL TRADITION AND THE PRINCIPLE OF JUSTICE: THE SANITARY COMMON GOOD Over the last century health has ceased to be a private matter concerning mainly individuals and has become instead a public problem, a political issue. The terms 'health' and 'politics', initially mutually exclusive, have become inextricably intertwined in the expression 'health policy', and today it is hard to find any aspect of health completely detached from the immense bureaucratic apparatus of health policy.
