This paper is designed to help students work through an ethical scenario both biblically and methodically. Write a 2,475-word paper in which you apply the lessons learned in the course to counseling a client facing an ethical issue. Choose one of the scenarios provided below and write a paper in which you do the following:Demonstrate your understanding of the scenarioApply scriptural teachingsSupply practical guidelines for the clientScenarios:Scenario 1: Euthanasia (either active, or passive, or both)Active euthanasia: the choice to assist in directly taking the life of a human being.Mercy killing: assisting in taking the life of someone in extreme pain, such as through an injection (also known as physician-assisted suicide).Example: A family member is suffering from severely painful bone cancer and there is nothing that the doctors are able to do to reduce pain. The family member is in anguish and wishes to “go on home” to be with the Lord.Passive euthanasia: acting to avoid prolonging death.Persistent vegetative state and the removal of food and water or the removal of life support (specifically, breathing tubes, or heart machine).Example: A family member was in a terrible car accident and is in a continuous vegetative state (coma). The doctors have indicated that there is little hope of the family member coming out of the coma, as he cannot survive without a breathing tube, food, and water. Other family members are urging you to make the decision to “pull the plug” and let him pass away.Scenario 2: Reproductive Technologies (either infertility treatments, or genetic testing, or both)Infertility treatments: use of technology to aid in fertilization.In in-vitro fertilization, the egg is fertilized outside of the womb, then placed back inside the womb of the mother.Example: A man’s sperm is not considered “strong,” and therefore the couple is unable to conceive naturally.Alternative example: A woman’s eggs are not viable, so the couple considers using a donor’s egg, fertilizing it with the husband’s sperm.Genetic testing and selective fertilization: testing the eggs and sperm for viability or particular characteristics.Evaluating eggs and sperm from a husband and wife to select those that are genetically preferable.Example: A couple has two children with a rare genetic disorder, as both the husband and wife are carriers. They wish to have children without the disorder, so they are considering testing the eggs and sperm and using only those without the disorder.Paper to have:Introduction with strong thesis statement Scenario – discussion as per paper terms:Demonstrating understanding of the scenario ,Application of scriptural teachings, andSupply practical guidelines for the client Conclusion Support your position by referencing at least SIX academic resources, preferably from the GCU Library, in addition to the Bible, topic overviews, readings, and the textbooks.
