Paper, Order, or Assignment Requirements
After completing your module reading on Bioethics, you are required to write a 500-1000 word (2-4 page) Essay on one of the major bioethical issues of contemporary importance.
Possible topics include: abortion, euthanasia, genetic engineering, cloning, or medical research.
The essay must be written from an Ethical prospective, in other words, do not analyze the topic from a legal, sociological, or alternative perspective. Make use of the Ethical Theories you have learned throughout the course, for example Virtue Ethics, Natural Law Theory, Utilitarianism, or Deontological Ethical Theory, etc.
Note that mature philosophical reflection always includes a deep understanding of all side of an issue, while at the same time it presents a personal perspective that is grounded logically and based in evidence. It is not enough to have an opinion philosophically speaking if you do not understand the opinions of others. Be sure to demonstrate logically the strength or weakness of every claim you make. ______________________________________________________________________
