Ethics powerpoint

 

Analyze the following scenario from a critical thinking perspective:

 

In the process known as in vitro fertilization, human embryos are

 

created by combining sperm and eggs in a laboratory and then stored

 

in freezers for later implantation. The process almost always results in a

 

surplus of embryos. But a number of questions with moral implications

 

arise from this fact. What should be done with the embryos that are not

 

used? Can they be thrown away? Should they, instead, be buried? Who

 

should decide? Consider the moral criteria that are involved in this issue

 

and answer accordingly

 

Prepare and present a PowerPoint Presentation describing the relationship between critical thinking and ethics. Including an introductory, a conclusion slide and references slide. 

 

Note. Remember that this should be based on critical thinking, not on your personal opinion. Please include responses to the following in your PowerPoint:

 

  • What is the moral responsibility of all participants?
  • What are the stakeholders’ moral failings?
  • What ideals or obligations are in conflict?
  • What is the best outcome, given the consequences? 

 

Submit PowerPoint Presentation with speaker notes and visual aids if possible and present during class and be prepared to respond to questions.
