This article uses Lindemann’s feminist ethics to counter Julian Savulescu’s claim that enhancement is acceptable. It makes the claim that Savulescu misunderstands the need for health. Savulescu’s conceptualization of health and mode of enhancement would uphold existing distributive justice problems and support existing oppressive power structures. As such, enhancement in the way that Savulescu conceptualizes it is unethical.
