Do you think sex-selection abortions are morally permissible?

Chapter 8, Discussion Question(s) in reference to CASES FOR ANALYSIS, “1. Aborting Daughters,”
“Do you think sex-selection abortions are morally permissible? What reasons can you provide to back up your view?

Why or why not”? (Use 200 or more words.)

What are the Limits of a Community’s right to know?

Moskop, J. C. (2016). Ethics and health care: an introduction (Ser. Cambridge applied ethics). Cambridge University Press.
The formulation of a strong ethical argument is vital to our success as patient advocates. In many cases, our words (written or spoken aloud), are the only tools we have to rely on when fulfilling our fiduciary responsibility to those in our care. Once we have contemplated and formed a compelling ethical argument, we must communicate that argument to those around us in order for the argument to influence the decision and make a difference in the lives of our patients.
Your assignment is to utilize Nelson’s Method for formulating an ethical argument for ONE of the following case studies, provided by the Center for Practical Bioethics
The Case of Jack: What are the Limits of a Community’s right to know? (confidentiality)

The Case of Jack: What are the Limits of a Community’s Right to Know?


The Case of Sepsis in a Newborn Leading to Short Bowel Syndrome (Pediatrics)

The Case of Sepsis in a Newborn


The Case of Jesse: Unrepresented and Homeless (sensitive populations)

The Case of Jesse, Unrepresented and Homeless


The requirements for the outline are as follows:

Address each step of Nelson’s method for formulating an ethical argument
Draft a paragraph introducing the dilemma and a short conclusion stating the premise you will argue
Include supporting perspectives, principles, and precedent for each aspect of your argument
You must have at least three sources to support the argument in APA format
This outline may be completed in Microsoft Word or Google Documents. You should be able to accomplish this assignment in under three pages. A table or bulleted format is appropriate. A template is provided.

What conflicts of interest arise out of the funding of COVID-19 research?

The research aspect of COVID19 during the pandemic has been accelerating at an exponential pace. We have the advantage of initiating, completing and publishing research at a pace greater than that of any previous era of human history. While this is certainly a positive aspect of modern life, it is not without moral challenges.
In this week’s assigned content, we read of two prominent medical journals publishing and subsequently retracting, provocative research regarding COVID-19. You may wish to read these publications (at least the abstract) and subsequent retractions before creating your post.
In your post, please address the following prompts regarding research in the era of COVID19.
What incentives do researchers and publishers have to be “early” to publish data regarding COVID-19? Which of these is internal? Which are external? What is the moral basis of each incentive?
Under what circumstances should data be rushed to publication? Under what circumstances should publication be delayed.
What conflicts of interest arise out of the funding of COVID-19 research?
Who should researchers and publications ultimately be accountable to? The medical community? The government? Their funding organizations? The general public?
Please review the supplementary material within this folder relating to the ethics of medical research.

How would the perspectives you have researched view this dilemma?

In this week’s assigned content, we listen to a podcast detailing the story of a family who was forced to make a difficult end-of-life decision.
The decision to withdraw care, especially in cases of chronic or debilitating illness or injury, is one of the most problematic ethical dilemmas many of us will ever face. As respiratory therapists, we are often involved with patients who may be at the end of life stage and are often confided in by the friends and family of the patients to which we provide care. We must prepare to encounter these situations by considering our own moral position regarding issues such as advance directives, withdrawal of life-supporting therapies, and the meaning of “death with dignity”.
After listening to “Blink Once for Yes” respond to at least three of the following prompts.
What are the ethical issues at play? How would the perspectives you have researched view this dilemma?
How do the concepts of advanced directives impact this case?
Did Mike have patient advocates? If so, who were they and how did they advocate for Mike. Would you have done the same?
What are the legal implications? Do you agree with the legal requirements the family had to operate under? Why or why not? What are the laws in your state?
Ultimately, do you feel that the correct decision was made?
Please review the supplementary resources in this folder to help you gain additional insight into end-of-life issues that you may be facing in your career.

Are you surprised or alarmed that so much of your personal data is available in this ecosystem?

Instructions:
The advertising industry has undergone a dramatic transformation in the past decade. In the past, advertisers had to guess where they could reach potential customers on television, radio and print. Now, much of the advertising budget is spent online where advertisers are able to reach specific individuals who are most likely to buy their advertiser’s product or service. Through Google they know what you have searched for and deliver ads for that. Amazon knows what you buy and suggests products based upon that. Facebook know a great deal about your life through your posts, you friends, your messages as well as any web site you sign in using your Facebook credentials. By matching email addresses, mobile phone numbers, IP addresses, advertisers can identify who you are and where you live. Superimposed upon this system is a network of data brokers who buy and sell data from online companies and assemble disparate pieces of data into a profile of individuals that undoubtedly include you. There is hardly any regulation of this data ecosystem. For an example, read the linked New York Times articles on data apps and the data they provide and respond to the questions below.
