Please submit your Portfolio Project topic.
Your first job is to choose a Medical Case Study that presents an ethical dilemma. You must choose a Case Study from the following website:Center for Practical Bioesthetics.
Then, you will be taking a position on that topic. For instance, if I picked euthanasia as my topic, I would either support euthanasia OR, I would be against it.
Finally, you must present the ethical theory that will best support your stance. Will you use the principles of Utility or Deontology to support your position?
Your Paper Topic should include the following three items:
- Summarize the issue presented in your case study
- Define your stance on this issue.
- Define the ethical model (Utilitarianism or Deontology) that you will use to prove your position/stance on the topic.
IMPORTANT: Your topic must be approved before you write your project. If your topic requires revision, please follow up with your instructor for assistance and new topic ideas.
To be clear, your Portfolio Paper is not a reportabout an ethical issue. This assignment is not asking you to report all about how abortion works, or the history of euthanasia. The Portfolio Project is an argumentative paper which means that you must make claims supporting your position on your ethical topic. Some background about your topic is okay, but it should be limited to no more than a few lines that define your topic for the average reader in your opening. The main purpose of the paper is to show your ability to craft an argument and find support for that ethical position.
