RELG 035. Religion and Medical Ethics
This course will examine some of the major themes, methods, and topics of bioethics through the lens of religion, focusing primarily on the three Abrahamic religions: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. We will then explore specific bioethical topics and cases, to include: abortion, assisted reproductive technology, end-of-life issues, organ donation and transplantation, research on human subjects, and justice in health care. In addition to the scholarly literature of the field of medical ethics, we will also read three longer texts that deal with many of the pertinent issues.
