授業の概要・目的 Is it okay to take pills to help you ace exams? Should you be able to choose the sex of your child? Is abortion murder?

Reproductive technology such as surrogacy and sex-selection of the baby Abortion

You will also learn about ethical arguments and regulations in Japan and other countries concerning life sciences and healthcare. The hope is, through this course, you will better understand and formulate your own opinions on these important issues.
