Instructor: Joseph Porter. This course meets MTWRF 11:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. via synchronous remote instruction.

Is abortion wrong? What about euthanasia, or animal research, or having children—or not? Bioethicists investigate topics like these in medicine, public health, and other related fields. In this course, we will explore some important topics in bioethics and consider what they can teach us more broadly about ethical life and thought. No prior experience with philosophy is expected or required.
