Bioethics (SD 303)

 

Bioethics explores the ethical problems raised by developments in the life sciences (medicine, genetics, biology.) This seminar will examine a sampling of these ethical issues as they have made their way through the legal system. Course topics will include the evolution and current contours of "the right to die," the living will movement, euthanasia and physician-assisted suicide, artificial reproductive techniques and their regulation, genetic screening, and the allocation of medical resources in the managed care era.
