Healthcare professionals face ethical questions every day.

Healthcare professionals face ethical questions every day. This is particularly true for those whose scriptural worldview may seem unfamiliar, or even antagonistic, to the secular scientific community. This assignment asks you to research and analyze the ethical issues involved in a healthcare environment that poses such ethical challenges.
The Collins text explores a number of current healthcare topics that present bioethical issues, especially when viewed from a biblical worldview perspective:

Medical genetics
Personalized medicine
DNA testing
Stem cells and cloning
Genetic enhancement

Select one of these topics and provide critical analysis of (i) the ethical issues for society, (ii) the ethical issues for a Christian healthcare professional, and (iii) whether and how a Christian should participate in such efforts. Title your thread with the subject of the analysis and your conclusion (e.g., “Cloning, Ethical”).


As an additional perspective, consider the interview with Dr. Collins in this module’s Learn items, in which he continues to discuss the interaction of faith and science.
