The ethics of cochlear implantation in infants and children is an important issue which has received a lot of attention, in particular from the signing deaf community and their advocates. Many of the issues raised by the signing deaf community are in regard to human experimentation and are therefore ethical in nature. Others are concerned with whether it is natural to have a hearing loss, and this goes beyond the realm of ethics. This chapter examines cochlear implantation in children in light of generally accepted ethical principles.
