This course is designed to introduce the student to the relatively young field of bioethics. Topics include procreative technologies including in vitro fertilization, the creation and manipulation of human embryos for research, genetic testing
and interventions, and end-of-life issues including euthanasia and physician-assisted suicide. Some of these issues will be addressed in light of various ethical theories that have been influential among both Christian and non-Christian bioethicists.
