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.
