Research Hall 202
Section Information for Fall 2017
This course examines the ethical principles that guide our society’s most important decisions in health care, with a focus on principles developed in Protestant, Catholic, Jewish, Islamic and humanistic traditions, and embedded in our contemporary pluralistic society. It examines debates about assisted suicide; terminating life-sustaining treatment; abortion and maternal-fetal relations; artificial reproduction; the use of human subjects in research; genetic counseling, screening, and engineering; obtaining and distributing organs for transplantation; and a variety of public health issues from AIDS to possible bioterrorist attacks. We will use numerous actual and hypothetical cases to highlight moral issues.
