In this assignment, you will select a current medical ethics issue to research and write about for your research paper, which is due week 10.

Select a topic related to one of the following current medical ethics issues:

  • End of Life
  • Eugenics and Human Genetics
  • Medical Research
  • Reproductive Issues
  • Organ Donation and Transplantation
  • Public Health Issues
  • Access to Health Care
  • Biotechnology

Write a paragraph stating your specific issue (for instance, if you choose to write about End of Life, the particular case might be physician-assisted suicide) and explain why you have chosen this issue to research. Make sure there are competing positions on this issue that reflect differing ethical principles or interpretations.

Include references for three sources that could be used in the final paper. All sources should be less than five years old unless recent research is not available, and at least one reference must be a peer-reviewed article from a professional journal. Do not use Wikipedia or an encyclopedia as they are not considered reliable academic sources and will not be accepted.

Submissions should follow the APA format, including Title Page and References. No Abstract is required for this assignment.
