Ethics in Life Sciences and Healthcare: Exploring Bioethics through Manga - Part 2
Is it permissible to create human clones? Would you really want to live forever? Is brain death the death of a human being?
These controversial questions will be explored through stories in Manga in this bioethics course. Bioethics is an interdisciplinary field of study that looks into ethical, legal, and social implications of life sciences and health care.
This course will help you understand key ethical issues surrounding crucial problems that literally impact your life from birth to death.
