For the discussion board this week pick organ donation OR procreative technologies and address the following topics:
How has technology changed the experiences associated with these medical processes? What might life have been like for someone before these technologies were developed? How is it different today?
What are some of the legal and ethical issues surrounding these technologies? How might the legal and ethical issues impact how the procedure is viewed?
Where do you see this going in the future?
These issues are discussed in the text, but you may use (appropriate) outside sources. Revisit the links I provided in the prompt for the Topic Selection in Week 3 if you aren’t sure how to tell an appropriate source from an inappropriate source!
