opic 1: Refusal of blood transfusions by Jehova’s Witnesses
I really hope I do not judge on any way to any of my peers. This topic I truly believe is very ethical related and that is why I decided to go on with it.
Support: God allowed Noah and his family to add animal flesh to their diet after the Flood but commanded them not to eat the blood. God told Noah: “Only flesh with its soul-its blood-you must not eat.” This command applies to all mankind from that time on because all are descendants of Noah. I start with this line from the Bible because they have strongly believes of what they are and what they will become. They love their God and what they were taught about their faith.
Topic 2: Patient with severe cognitive impairment (SCI) should not be denied organ transplants.
This topic seeks the support that this type of patient with severe cognitive impairment should not be discriminated in receiving organ transplant. Is important determine the urgency of transplant for example prioritizing the sickest patient.
Topic 3: Should Researchers Share Genomic Results With Participant’s Relatives?
In many types of human research, individual findings might not matter much to anyone besides the participants themselves. Genomic research is a bit different; first- degree biological relatives share 50% of the participant’s genetic material . If researchers discover that a participant carries a gene linked to a dangerous but possibly preventable disease, they know that the participant’s relatives may also carry the gene. Warning these relatives could save lives – yet this rarely happens. Why?
Support- participants should control access to their individual results.
