Biomedical Ethics, 7,5 ECTS credits

Can abortion be morally defensible? Would it be ethically acceptable to genetically enhance our children to become more intelligent? Should physician-assisted suicide be allowed for terminally ill patients suffering unbearable pain? When not all can get a vaccine during a pandemic influenza, who should be prioritized? In this course, we discuss a number of issues like these. We study various cultural perspectives, arguments and cases.
