Reading assignment:Jamieson text, p. 144-152.
(NOTE: this reading assignment has nothing whatever to do with the test below. Iâ€d suggest finishing the test first, prior to doing the reading, so as to avoid confusion.)
Instructionsâ€” Your responses should be approximately the word total suggested for each of the five questions. These suggestions are approximate; do not obsess about hitting these numbers exactly. The text must be double spaced, and printed single-sided, with 1.5â€ left/right margins, with pages stapled together.
(NOTE: there is a 1/3 letter grade penalty for noncompliance with each of these underlined factors. For a heading on the paper, use whatever you like as long as your name is present, and whatever font, type size, you like.)
You must bring the paper to the class on Monday the 6th, during class time. Alternatively, if you can’t be in class, you must have someone else turn it in on your behalf. For example, you may email it to a classmate and have them print and submit it (or you may have anyone else bring it to class).
If you do not turn in a paper during class time (or have one turned in on your behalf) on Monday the 6th, you will receive an F for the test.
1. For abortion to be considered wrong, Thompson says â€œâ€¦we need to [show] that killing the fetus violates its right to life, i.e., that abortion is unjust killing.â€ What analogy (thought experiment) does she use to consider the situation; how is this applicable to pregnancy arising from voluntary intercourse? (100 wds) [Note: Base answers only on the part of Thompsonâ€s article read in this class.]
2. Once a decision has been made for a terminally ill patient to die, is â€œletting the person dieâ€ better than â€œtaking active measuresâ€ to end the personâ€s life? Briefly give Rachelâ€s view; use most of the word count to say whether or not you agree, and why or why not. (100 wds)
3. Singer says that if his principle was actually acted upon, it would have profound implications, and that our world would be fundamentally changed. Describe and explain two of these implications/changes. (100 wds)
4. Warren says animals have rights, while saying that these are not the same as moral rights accorded to people. What does she name as a distinguishing characteristic, what does she list as implications flowing from that characteristic, and are there any exceptions to the necessity of this characteristic? (100 wds)
5. Do you think society should encourage and/or permit gene editing? If so, for which purposesâ€”therapeutic or enhancement?; both/neither/one or the other? What effects might any decision have on society? Whatever your sayâ€”to any part of any questionâ€”give a reasoned analysis supporting your position, but briefly. (between 100-150 words).
