PHIL 4493 Bioethics: Ethical Issues in Healthcare (Fall: 3 )

Course Description

Should doctors ever be allowed to help their patients die? How much healthcare are we entitled to receive? What, if anything, is wrong with cloning human beings? Is abortion morally wrong? May parents be allowed `designer babies"? What moral obligations do doctors have toward disadvantaged populations? In this course, we will examine some philosophical answers to these pressing questions of modern societies. Topics include justice and health-care, stem-cell research, euthanasia, human cloning, abortion, ethics and medical research in underdeveloped countries.
