Write a paper on “How one defines what a person is or when human life begins determines one’s bioethical
views on major issues such as abortion, IVF, embryonic stem cell research, and euthanasia.”
To write this paper, you are asked to:
1- In a first section, summarize four conceptions of personhood from your textbook
(pages 152-160), two religious and two secular views. Make sure you NAME the
proponents of each view, while citing the textbook page between parentheses. At
the end of this first section, CHOOSE ONE conception of personhood that matches
your own views.
2- In a second section, explain how your chosen conception of personhood
determines your personal ethical position on abortion, IVF, embryonic stem cell
research, and euthanasia. NOTE: You are not simply asked to state your position, but
to show clearly how this position is founded on your definition of personhood.
3- In a third section, explore the limitations of your position on these different issues,
i.e., the ways in which others might object to your ethical positions. NOTE: You do
not need to formulate a reply to these challenges, but simply to show that you are
aware of the objections others may raise against your position.
4- Include a short introduction and a short conclusion.
5- Although this paper asks for your personal position on biomedical issues, you MUST
SHOW WHAT YOU HAVE LEARNED from this class by using concepts, terms, ideas,
and authors you have read about in the textbook.
6- The length of the paper is between 600-750 words.
7- Edit your work. Typos, grammatical errors, and incomplete or unclear sentences
will affect your grade negatively. Good luck with all your finals!
