Course Description

Recent advances in biomedical sciences have raised a host of ethical concerns involving the sanctity and quality of life, fairness, equality, and autonomy. New and revolutionary developments call for legislative reform and policies designed to keep research and its applications within appropriate boundaries. This course examines issues such as cloning, assisted reproduction, genetic screening, gene therapy, organ donation, and resource allocation within a framework of moral principles and contemporary debate. PHL 509 is not available for credit to students who choose PHL 302.

Notes

There will be an on-campus exam for the distance offering of this course; however, arrangements can be made for those students who live more than 100 km from the Ryerson campus. For more information, visit Off-Campus Exam FAQ.
